The Best Sign Ever

The public bathrooms in Angkor Wat temple complex are some of the most luxurious in Asia. That is to say, they are not holes in the ground, but rather Western-style toilets that you sit on! Sometimes the seats are clean! They have toilet paper and soap! You still can’t throw the toilet paper in the bowl because the pipes can’t handle it (it goes in the trash can in the corner instead), but still– toilet paper! Woo hoo!

So, here’s the thing: apparently a bunch of Angkor Wat visitors are not used to such a toilet situation. Therefore, in front of every toilet in the temple complex, there is the following sign:

Let me translate this for you.

1. No smoking (easy)

2. Do not place your feet two feet in the air on the toilet bowl and squat on it like you’re over a hole in the ground, because you’re not.

3. Do not use the butt spray hose to spritz off your bare feet. It is strictly for butt use.

4. Do not take off all your clothes and start taking a full-body shower in the toilet stall using the scrappy removable shower head above the toilet.

Easy, right? :)

In other news, I love geckos.
