Me and the squat-toilet

Well, my first times on a squat-toilet here in Sumba were quite challenging. Saying anything else would be a lie, but after some weeks now I seem to have adjusted. Its still kind of new to me, but thinking of a western standard-toilet is starting to feel strange now.

Using a Squat-Toilet is just one of my challenges here, but I am starting to enjoy it!

Something deep inside me even seems to appreciate it. Many scientists say squatting is the most healthy (because its the most natural) way to do ones business. Aside from that it is supported by the daily squats I included in my daily yoga and exercise-schedule and hey! I don’t know about your family, but at least my grandparents always had a small table in their bathroom to place it under their feet and help them to put their body in a more squatty position!
