Toilet in China

In airports &  hotels, we encountered mostly Western-style commodes.  Public restrooms in non-tourist areas are a different story, though!  I'd been warned about the "squatters", but I didn't realize just how crude they were.  Toilet paper is the norm in the U.S., and bidets are pretty popular in Europe, but here there was nothing!  You just squat and keep your clothes out of the way, and if "it" doesn't make a clean exit, that's your problem!  Now I understand why we were warned to bring a roll of TP -- it wasn't for the hotel.  Sorry, folks, I forgot to take a picture....
