Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_03 : Rampart Toilet

As we walked towards the port, Dad pointed out the oldest toilets in Port Louis. These are built right on the edge of the rampart. Only two footpads and a hole. It's a 20 ft drop to the beach below. The tide flushes twice a day. The town got worried that someone might lose their balance and fall off. They closed it off, but it was still in use when my Dad moved there.

Good grief! I know otters have a communal place to take a dump but you'd think we humans would have evolved a little more than that. As for the sea flushing it, "out of sight, out of mind". Sorry, but I think there are better ways of dealing with our excrement.
