Toilet Differences Around the World

While in the U.K., I found a wonderful book that shows all the different and interesting toilets around the world. Really it's a fascinating read. That book now sits on the back of the toilet in our guest room for the reading enjoyment of our many house guests.

When you think about it, the toilet has been around for more than 5,000 years and it is one of mankind's most basic and important appliance. Are you familiar with the different toilets used around the world? The plumbing industry has opened my eyes to the large array of toilet styles available. While online the other day I came across this article, 'Toilet Differences Around The World'.

This story features different types of toilets, like the hybrid squat seat. This gives you the option to sit or squat with its adjustable lid. These toilets are very popular in third world countries.

For all the women reading this blog, I would suggest you take the time to visit this website - http://www.thetravelalmanac.com/toilet-differences.htm. Familiarize yourself with the different types of toilets around the world, because one day you may travel and end up using e one. And I find that one can learn a lot about a culture just by understanding something as basic as a toilet. I call it the "Plumber's Philosophy."

Here's wishing you a world class day.
