I know my other post on our bathrooms here in India wasn’t complete, so here’s the rest of it. The toilets.
This ‘Indian bathroom’ is in the palace in Orchha we visited in September. (Si Mamá, se ponen los dos pies a cada lado del hoyo ahi, que esta más alto para que no te mojes, y uno hace paradita no mas)
This is in our house, now.
This is one of the toilets we have in our house here in Gwalior. (Mamá, I took the picture right after I cleaned the bathroom so it’s clean.) It’s a ‘Western Bathroom’ with the amenities of the ‘Indian Bathrooms’, I think.
You can use a bucket that you fill with water from that little faucet by the floor right next to the toilet, you can see in the photo above.
And our toilet has this metal thing poking from the back, as you see here, that you can turn on with a handle right next to the toilet, and shoots water.
I really like it. It’s like having a built-in bidet. We had a bidet in my house in Chile, growing up. But no need to get wet. It’s pretty handy I think, but not all bathrooms have it.
Or you can use them how Siena and Lucas do, to wash the wall on the other side of the bathroom, if you turn it high… but I don’t think it’s meant for that.
This ‘Western Bathroom’ is from the hotel we stayed in Jaipur.
It has this little shower that I’m assuming you can use as the other sprayer I showed earlier, instead of having a bucket. But even with all these ‘tools’ I need my toilet paper too, and I always end up with my pants wet anyways.
This is the bathroom in the train, still clean, before we left the station. With the little metal bucket (hooked with a chain so it doesn’t disappear or fall into the hole, I think) and the little faucet with water.
And I think by far, the hardest thing I’ve had to do here in India, is go to the bathroom in a moving train.
