A little bathroom humor

This follows my last blog perfectly.

Jakarta is definitely the most modern city in Indonesia. In fact, some Indonesian visitors aren’t familiar with the facilities—like the Western toilet. (Usually bathrooms in Jakarta have squat toilets, too, but you can almost always find a Western one around.)

At places like Sea World (more on that later), there are diagrams on how NOT to treat a Western toilet like a squat toilet.


  1. Haha, I remember those signs. I still giggle every time I see one!

  2. And silly me, I've been using them the wrong way my entire life. Hmmm... that would have saved a few pairs of shoes...
