So the bathrooms in Peru prepared me in unimaginable ways for Korea, as there are holes in the floor here too! I am an old hat at them since we hiked the Inca trail, but poor Miss Emmie was NOT prepared for what is lovingly called “the squatty potty” by the Americans around here (everywhere she had gone so far has been on base or just outside of base, so they have had American style bathrooms.) This little gem was up in Seoul, and I am pretty sure she didn’t believe in the existence of this type of restroom before actually seeing one. Unfortunately for her she was desperate to go, so she had no choice but to dive in squat first.
I was more kind to her then Peru was to me, and I showed her how to go by leaning most of your weight on one leg, and went in with her and held her up so she didn’t fall over or have some other “issue”, but man – Traumatized doesn’t even begin to cover her reaction to the bathrooms here!
