Hi all. This is my first post here. I live in Costa Mesa, CA at the moment but I’m relocating to Taichung at the end of August. My sister and I were having a discussion the other day about travelling - she’s been to Europe a bunch and I’ve been to the Philippines, China, and Taiwan. During the course of our conversation the topic of toilets came up. Apparently, the ‘squatter’ type of toilet is also popular in France. I thought before that they were an Asia specific thing.
So anyway, the question arose: Which way do you face when you use them? Do you back your ass in or face the plumbing?
