Laurel asked me what toiletries are after I mentioned that I wanted to pick up a toiletry bag before I finished packing. (I've been using a slide-lock plastic zipper-lock bag for a few years.)

In looking up the etymology of toiletries, we looked at the Wikipedia article on toilets, where she was fascinated by a picture of a squat toilet accompanied by the text:
"...the squat toilet is still somewhat common in public restrooms in southern and eastern Europe (including parts of France, Greece, Italy, and the Balkans) as well as East Asia (China and Japan) and other places."


She replied to that, "Like New York?". Ouch.

It is, but I'm pretty sure there aren't many (if any) squat toilets there. Just, y'know, alleys and other places I've seen people urinate in movies. (:

I went into a place in France to use their restroom (had to be a client so even bought something) and it was a squat toilet. I couldn't really figure it out so I left and found a different place.
