Here are a couple of fun bathroom facts:

  • In Greece, every bathroom has a small garbage can. Instead of flushing used toilet paper, you are expected to throw it out in the garbage can. This helps protect the Greek sewage system. When I talked about this with an Olympic volunteer, he was shocked to learn that this was not the practice everywhere in the world.
  • In Italy, many public restrooms do not have toilet seats. This isn’t to say that they are eastern-style toilets. No, most of the restrooms are western-style toilets with the proper holes to attach a toilet seat, but they just don’t have toilet seats.
