tibet3 -- "What the hell is that?", you may be asking. Well, that is the bathroom at my hotel in Tingri. It was one of the more unusual bathrooms I saw in Tibet, or anywhere else for that matter. The structure itself is not so unusual, it has a mens room and a womens room. As a man I simply walk up the stairs on the left side and squat over one of the two holes in the floor. There is a three foot (1 meter) wall separating the mens side from the womens side. What is so interesting about it is that as you squat over the whole you can see Mount Everest in the distance. It is a wonderful view. Also, the bathroom is only a short distance from the highway so you can watch everybody in town too. And of course they can watch you too.
