Anyone who has traveled in the east will have come across the squat toilet. Now this can range from a pristine piece of porcelain or stainless steel to a black filthy whole in the ground. My advice is don't be scared of these 'cos when you gotta go you gotta go. just think of it as having a good old fashioned 'bos kak' which I am sure most of you have done. You position yourself over the whole, make sure you have good balance. You feet must be flat on the ground and don't balance on your toes. Make sure nothing can fall out of pockets and let the games begin. Personally, I quite like these toilets - i think it might having something to with the angle of trajectory.. Once you have mastered it it is all very simple..... Except when the floor is awash with liquid that reminds you of the scene from the movie Trainspotting but my all time favourite is on the trains. Not only do you have to contend with the swaying and buffeting of the train but the wind is being sucked between you legs like a jet engine.

 Now a lot of you know that after my operation the worst side effect was the regular diarrhea. back home it is not a problem as one can generally find a respectable toilet in most places. This was one of my biggest concerns when I left. I have been here for almost six weeks and have had no problems at all. In fact my digestive system has never been better. I believe that this is due to a mainly vegetarian diet, no red meat, hardly any dairy and copious amounts of ginger tea. 

That was until a few days when my brother contacted me and was asking about 'Delhi Belli'. I was happy to tell all was good and was feeling good about it. The the curse struck - not a few hours later it struck. I have not been able to move more than a 100 meters away from a toilet for the last 3 days. I have swallowed pills, stopped eating and yet it stills flows from my frail body. Simon you are shit.
