Kudos to you. This is very helpful and truthful. Could you write more to help Westerners prepare for these? It is very difficult, especially if you are not prepared.

You will be OK.

Just follow the instructions at # 1..........................   


I'm already pretty much OK with them,
still try to avoid of course,
but if the toilet is public,
thinking of what those leaving the squat toilets in the described condition,
might also leave on a seating toilet with inevitable body contact,

well after having figured out how to, guess what I take.

It is just a light hearted poke at something which is there.

I think much kudos must go to China in that there is a growing awareness of this.

In many cities there may still just be a hole, but many places are actually much cleaner now.

The hole is a cultural thing, but the cleanliness is a logical thing.

Try to imagine the situation of a foreign student,
just relocated from adjusted building in an old campus,
to a new ridiculously remote campus,
realising that the very buildings that were designed and built for use by foreigners right from the start,
have now only shared and public squat toilets...
with not a single alternative miles around.

thanksfully not my story, but astonished me nevertheless.
