Lo Pan

I have a compulsive need to document the conditions at my base camp, whether it be for a night, a week or even longer. So I though I would put my predilection to to serve the needs of the community and thence this thread.. :)

For me my porcelain thrones are no less than those graced by members of Royalty/Nobility and are vital to my emotional well being, to quote;

modern 'toilets' are large flushable porcelain bowls
which catch waste from both your and my exit holes.
i'm used to white ones with large flush-water tank.
a hidden pipe carries off stuff that often does smell rank.

some in India were quite different……with no way to sit!
i'm glad i found 'my style' when t'was time to shit.
and if from toilet-paper usage you're leaning,
some toilets have the choice of an in-bowl shower, for cleaning.

toilet seats are sometimes colored, or cushioned, or even heated;
for me, more important (at times) is JUST to be SEATED!

toilets have changed since they were just holes in the ground.
i hope, when i 'need' a toilet, one's always around!
