When travelling in Asia, you may need to go potty. And when you find a public restroom, you may open a stall door to find this:
What is that? you ask? It’s a squat pot, that’s what. And if you have never used one before, it can be a real experience. Please note that I didn’t say good or bad experience.

If so, you’re in luck! If not, then prepare yourself for a potty-going adventure! I don’t have any tips for you except this (and I only mention this because I was told that some people didn’t know): You do NOT need to take off all your bottom-covering clothes (which would also involve your shoes – blech, blech, BLECH!).
