Mummy, I Have to Go Potty: A Visit to Toilets around the World
by Wilma Shine What goes in upstairs must come out downstairs, says Wilma Shine. Whether you are poor or rich, sophisticated or illiterate no difference between races you are bound to this relationship for a lifetime. You simply cannot avoid it. Every meal means a walk to a facility later. Whatever delicious, tasty thing goes in on top must come out in a smelly substance at the bottom. This comprehensive and delightful overview of world toilets covers what theyre called in various countries, what they look like, and how to find them. Wilma Shine discusses the special language used for toilets and their contents across the globe and through the ages; all the words are here. She is widely traveled and her personal experience is much in evidence in this book.
