To celebrate the end of the semester yesterday, my boss took me and my two foreign coworkers out to play pool (pool halls are everywhere in South Korea).

After a few games I needed to use the bathroom and stumbled upon pretty much the Platonic Ideal of a scary Korean toilet:

Squat toilet?  Check!

No toilet paper?  Check!

No water running in the sink?  Check!

No soap?  Check!

I learned early on in South Korea that you must always, always carry a pack of wet naps (“mul-tish“) with you lest you find yourself in the above situation.

Second, the problem with squat toilets isn’t the squatting per se, but rather the aiming.  I have no idea what’s going on back there.

So there’s your Christmas TMI.  You’re welcome.
