But they are so considerate at the airport to let you have a shower for your feet! I didn’t actually see go in or out of it, but it’s there! I’ve never seen that before.

Admittedly I was a bit worried about the “bathroom situation”. When I was younger I didn’t mind even wilderness camping - can’t say I LIKED it, but I tolerated it. But as I grow older I have less desire to use the bushes, etc. My sis encouraged me to take pictures of the various outhouses or toilets that I encountered that were a bit different.

The hardest thing about the “bathroom situation” “everywhere, though, is that you aren’t supposed to throw the tp in the toilet - you are supposed to use the trash can. I didn’t take a picture. I’ll let you use your imagination on that one. Not a single trash can had a lid on it, either - except maybe one of the ones at the airport.

Umm…I hate to even mention these things, but this whole “bathroom situation” was the biggest thing I was worried about with this trip!

I guess I’ve gotten to be a first class wimp! It’s all very normal to everyone who lives there.
