Today, I discovered what a "squatter" was. Now when you gotta go, you gotta go, and I had to go. Sadly, the only nearby toilet was a squatter. Unlike the American's "porcelain goddess", a squatter in not something you can sit on. A squatter is a hole in the ground. No joke. There's a hole (in the ground) and you squat over it (you can fill in the blanks yourself). In America, toilet seats are all over the place; but in China, Squatters are in the main public restrooms. They are not comfortable and you can't flush them (no lie). In conclusion; if I never use a squatter again in my life, never would be too soon.
