I left a message for Trav today and he texted me that they are doing good. I'm glad you are having so much fun, you deserve it.

Scary! That's how some of the bathrooms are in Japan. I walked out of the bathroom and told my husband that I think I went into the mens room. He laughed and told me I was in the right restroom and wished me luck!!!

Couldn't help but chuckle when I saw this pic. Believe it or not when I lived in Italy there were worse public restrooms than this one! The bathroom in the local ferry station was a slanted cement slab. You would squat in the middle of the floor and your tinkle would flow to the low spot in the corner and drain away. Scout's honor!!!!!!

Hehehe...they're called WC in China/Hong Kong (where I served my mission). Ugh...not great memories! (Oh, WC is "water closet".)

Mr. and Mrs. Pope said...

Sandra said...

We had those in elementary school - far far aways from Thailand - it was in former Yugoslavia, and once you got used to it ... we didn't have problems using them!
Great those times are past perfect!

ALl I can do is laugh. I live in Okianwa, Japan right now and they have the same "toilets". Super easy for my boys to use but my daughter and I have not even attempted it.
