About 50% of men on the street here wear the traditional “dishdasha”, a sort of robe
looking like a long sleeved, collarless shirt, but continuing like a bulky dress all the way to
the ankles. Nearly always pure white, occasionally khaki, grey or brown, and sometimes
with a very modest decoration around the neck. However, after intense, though discreet,
observation, I can confirm that there is no fly or opening in a suitable location at the front.
Therefore, how do they pee? Do they hitch it all up while standing, or do they sit down like
Which brings me to a related question: what do they wear under it?
Methinks that in the interest of global understanding, I must pursue my research. Perhaps I
should hang out in a public loo until all is revealed?
