Somewhere - Indonesia

Today, The Toilets of the World Blog brings you a toilet from somewhere in Indonesia.

This squat toilet was sent in by one of our regular contributors, Marc Delport. Having gone to a happy place in his mind while visiting this toilet, he doesn't remember exactly where in Indonesia this was.

Lets really look at this toilet and dissect what we see.

The squat toilet itself seems to be in pretty good shape. We've certainly seen dirtier toilets at most gas station or fast food chains in more developed parts of the world.

The tiles add some color and character to the room even if they are splattered with black "stuff" in some unexpected areas.

There seems to be a tap next to the toilet so (assuming it works) you can wash your hands when you're done. No annoying "Employees must wash their hands before returning to work" sign here!

There's also what seems to be a pot next to the bowl. We assumed this serves as the main flushing device. It could probably also be used to vomit in for visitors with weaker constitutions. Either way, being used for cooking Indonesian staples such as nasi goreng, gado-gado, sate or soto, are dreams this pot has most likely stopped dreaming a long time ago.
