厕所谈话 – Toilet Talk

I had the chance to Skype with my grandmother and parents on Wednesday night (my time) and they asked me to please write more.  I’m finding that writing a blog is hard for 3 main reasons… 1) I am so busy experiencing China that I have little time to reflect on those experiences (but I will say I go to a transcendent state of mind about once a day just thinking, “dang, I have a cool life.”), 2) Life here is becoming routine which means…I am losing the ability to distinguish what is new and unique and thus worthwhile to any readers in the states, and 3) The internet here is the worst.

But my mom has been asking for a picture of the squat toilets here, so I thought I’d share a picture I took when I first arrived in China.  This one was taken at a nearby mall.

Squat Toilet

I honestly prefer these kind of toilets in public areas as there are so many times I have seen western style toilets a mess because women just stand up on them and try to use them like squat toilets.  Ugh and gross…
