Random Photo Memory: Mongolian Powder Room

Another gem from the wilds of Mongolia. This, was actually among the more posh facilities I enjoyed in nearly a month amid the Chinggis Khan playground.  More often, there wasn’t even an outhouse – just a matter of (literally) “pissin’ in the wind”!

Uh, Toto – I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore…

Off-the-beaten-path travel is my passion,and I’ve always lived life “like-a-kid-in-a-candy-store” – eager to sample as many flavors as I can. Indeed, my life motto has long been: This ain’t a dress rehearsal, folks!

    I could handle it! But I don’t really want to.

      Yep Amy, one would have to be certifiable to actually PAY MONEY to spend weeks under such rustic conditions. 😉 Ah but I’ve not yet shared my many tales of how utterly AWESOME living like a true nomad (from another century!) was.

      Still… no way to sugar-coat it – it truly WAS among the toughest 3 weeks I’ve ever spent.

  2. Looks like a drop toilet I experienced on a bush camping trip in Botswana. But at least mine had an actual toilet-looking thing to sit on. This one is simply horrible.

    • Or should I say, it’s simply “the pits”. haha. I make myself laugh… Sigh.

      Yes, a “drop” toilet indeed James – as in “drop your drawers”, and then “drop your load”! 😉

      And as I said, this was one of the more ritzy varieties I enjoyed in my three weeks exploring the far reaches of Mongolia. More often, it was simply a matter of finding a reasonably distant spot, dropping your drawers, and simply “pissin’ in the wind”!

      (hmmm… wonder why them call them “drawers” anyway?)
