Hmm.. Remember that it's your choice to read this or not.
I am used to say bathroom or girls room when it comes to this small room where toilet is. So now I was in Malawi, asking where is bathroom and where did I found myself? Showering room where was no toilet. Hmm, let's take it again.. "What I ment to ask was that where is toilet?". :D That toilet was quite okay. There was a toilet- seat, without that middle thing, whatever cover it is. Usually I wouldn't use that kind of toilets, but hey, this time I was living there for four weeks and I had no other options.. I covered the porcelain part with toiletpaper and sat down. I had my own Finnish toiletpaper which I was really thankful. It was already dark when I got there and all the stores were closed and all toiletpaper was used by that time already.
The second place where I stayed was bit different. There they had outhouse. No toilet seat, nothing.. Only hole in the ground. So you actually needed to "squat" there. It was bit dirty, but I have seen places more dirty than that also. When it became dark I didn't wanted to go in there. I had my flashlight with me and I hated everything I saw in there. I was so scared using it. One night I woke up and started walking towards that outhouse. I shouldn't drink that much water in the evenings, I know.. But anyways.
After that everything felt so good.. Toilet with whole in the ground but with water and toiletpaper and.. :)
