Today I learned that shitting is a social business in Ghana. Why construct separate toilets when you can construct one big one and chat and gossip together while shitting? They even told me that sometimes people who really have to take a dump need to ask the chatting people who already finished to clear a spot! I guess this is the alternative to reading the newspaper on the toilet. (by the way, they do have separate toilets for women and men). I love my job ;-)
