Toilets of Nepal (Nepal 2017-01)

Dear Readers, this will the first of a series of articles covering my October-November trip to Nepal.
So let us end 2017 with a blast (sorry I could not resist). Toilets or loos in rural Nepal are still a bit rough. But in the countryside, the buildings in which they are situated are often rather colorful. I should have photographed more of these little buildings, but there were so many interesting sights, I could not photograph everything. I can save this theme for my next trip (toilets of the world; outhouses of the world....).
Older toilet house at Takgon Sheddrub Tharling Monastery School, near Ringmu, Solu Khumbu region, Nepal. An aide group recently built a modern toilet and shower facility nearby. 
Shower and toilet facility at Numbur View Cheese Factory Lodge and Restaurant, Ringmu, Nepal.
Room with a view, as long as you are facing the squatty potty.  Chiwong Monastery, Chiwangteng, Solu Khumbu district, Nepal.
Hanging around in Junbesi: ready for scrubbing.
The first two photographs were taken with a Yashica Electro 35CC camera on Kodak Ektar 100 film. The squatty is from  a Nexus phone.

Standby for upcoming Nepal articles in 2018. Thank you, Readers.
