Mali - Somewhere in the Sahel

photo of toilet in mali

Today the Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from somewhere in the Sahel area of Mali. If you recognize this one, please send us the location. And go see a doctor. 

Having never been to the Sahel area ourselves, we looked it up on Wikipedia. We found that desertification is becoming a problem in the area as a result of over-farming, over-grazing and natural soil erosion. A serious problem to be sure. We don't have a solution and can only hope that someone smarter will come along and fix this. 

We are told that peeing on the desert will not help.

This photo was sent in by Marc Delport, an old friend of the Toilets of the World collection. 

Thanks Marc.
