That’s right.. the other day Julie, Annica and I visited the “Sulabh International Museum of Toilets.” The museum staff was very excited upon our arrival and brought out the curator, who spent an hour and a half taking us around the one room that is the toilet museum. He is SERIOUS about his toilets. I looked away for a second at another piece of toilet paraphenalia and was snapped back with a “Ma’am! I am telling you a story about toilets! Please listen!”
It was awesome and weird and hysterical. Did you know that stilettos were invented by women stepping over sewage in the streets? Or that many great wars were lost because of inadequate toilet facilities? Or that the very first toilet was invented in India? I left with a free toilet museum CD-ROM and the curator’s business card, in case I find some exciting toilet-related items to send to him.
And now, the gloriousness in a few photos:
(Anything familiar in that one, Amy L.??)
And my favorite picture that was on display:
