To pee or not to pee...

To pee or not to pee...

Whilst on holiday in Vietnam, I badly needed to make use of their public toilets. However, as I opened the door I saw a flat concrete floor with a tiny hole in the far back corner? There was also an opening against the wall with water inside and it stretched into the other cubicle?

Now, I was not sure how and where to pee. To my dismay, I decided to squat and urinate in the opening against the wall, it had water inside. I just started peeing when I heard water sounds from behind me? ... I immediately stopped to find that the Vietnamese women was scooping that water, which I just contaminated with my urine, to flush the concrete floor...which was the actual toilet...Oops!

It was a bit of a cultural embarrassment, but 'to pee or not to pee'.
