I really wasn’t expecting anything from Roscoff.  So I was very pleasantly surprised to find a lovely quaint little village.  The weather was gorgeous, so that obviously influenced my first impression of the place.  I made my first random acquaintance outside the port.  A lad called Mike, who was an avid traveler and was headed the same general direction, for a bit anyway.  He was my contrast, nothing booked, literally walked off the ferry with a mindset ‘right, so how do I get to Bordeaux’ I liked that. He was planning on walking across the top edge of Spain on a 800km pilgrimage, which does deserve some kudos I reckon.  So we arsed around Roscoff, had breakfast and then continued onto Morlaix.  The rail station in Roscoff really summed up the town, and in its toilet I was quite surprised to find whats shown in the photo.  I though it would be a few weeks before i encountered this kind of thing.

Don't you remember the squatting toilets in France? They are all over the place. I'm loving your blog.

I thought it was a Turkish toilet, that is what we call them, but they are also to be seen in Bulgaria, Romania and other places where people are so busy that there is no time to waste sitting on the toilet...

Just a taste of what's to come - wait till you get to India!!! You have to strip off and then drop through a hole in the floor into a pool of shit, dive in, do your business then get out and have a dip in the Ganges. Haven't you seen Slumdog?
