In light of having no water, I must say, there are certainly benefits to having outhouses (as I’ve been realizing since we moved into an apartment over winter and I no longer use an outhouse at home).
- First, you never have to worry about flushing when there’s no water. Definite plus.
- Second, the smells and sounds stay outside. (Yes, people, I just wrote that.)
- Third, you never really have to clean it like you do with a ceramic indoor toilet.
- Fourth, the water bill is less expensive.
I mean, all I’m saying is the Moldovans might be on to something. It’s all in perspective.
And here’s a picture of my former outhouse at site…stolen off of Facebook from the previous volunteer who lived with that family. (Thank you!)
