Beijing states that they will have 1 bathroom for every 10 people in Beijing
by the time of the Olympics. I wonder if this includes all the foriegners
that will descend upon the city or just the current amount of people living
there. I also wonder how they calculate this number seeing as they are
Anyway, this was one experience on our recent Beijing trip:
Just for fun, imagine what you get when you have a tour guide on your trip
to the Great Wall who tells you Beijing is dryer then other cities and that
you must drink more water all day. Then throw-in the fact that it is too
cold to pull your pants down, let alone use one of the infamous outdoor
toilets. Now for a dash of irony, add B on 50+ minute bus ride
returning to the city being taunted by the “Public Toilet This Way” sign at
every intersection and with no where to get off the bus.
Relax B. Think of a gentle stream…no wait… a waterfall… no a
warm bath….. AHHHHHGGHGHG! Don’t hit me!
(Man, Now I have to go pee.)
