Toilet Etiquette

When visiting Argentina, you will notice a distinct lack of public toilets. When you do find a public toilet, there's a good chance it won't have toilet paper. There may well be a toilet attendant who will dish out a few sheets (usually way too few!) in exchange for a coin, so I always recommend to people traveling to keep a roll in their bag for emergencies. It's also advisable to have coins in case you don't have your bag with you. If you don't leave a coin for the attendant you might be verbally abused and if looks could kill you would surely be dead! Above all, be sure to follow the toilet etiquette below!

ah these feckers are in Poland also but most folk ignore their requests for payment to use the loos and tell them to piss off.

Is there an assortment of aquatic life in Agentinian bogs?:/

Shaunj: we have a bit of everything in Argie loos including mosquitoes, stray dogs and the occasional fish!

I'd be stuffed if it wasn't for an industrial strength bladder! I don't do public toilets as a rule since I walked into that one at St Albans in the bush and found a very angry wombat who'd become trapped in there over night. Enough to make you poo square pellets . . and they do! (We have lots of Asian people here who still squat on the seat, there's something disconcerting about foot prints on a toilet seat!

I hate public toilets, and hate to pay for stuff. I think I'll stay home.

Baino: I have a strong bladder too but often end up with Delhi Belly so must spend a penny no matter what!

Red Mojo: Stay put for now but I'm starting a petition for better toilets so watch this space!
