Poop in China

As we visit some farms a bit outside of town we run across the most interesting bathroom we have seen in China. The most interesting poop in China, yet!! You might think it is odd that I actually took this picture, but you wouldn’t believe me if I just wrote it. So here you are!

You guessed it folks it is a large bucket in a tin shed of poop and god only knows what else. You are welcome to use it at anytime if you like. πŸ˜‰

Poop in China

In case you felt like you didn’t get a good view I decided to take close up shot. Maybe some of you can explain to me why it is in a pot and not a whole in the ground? That is what I don’t get.


It is never boring here in China!

    A great bit of information that I received from a reader…thought I would share it! “In early American history and even today on back-to-the-earth organic farms, poop/compost is used to fertilize the gardens and fields. Even though most people don’t know it here, septic pumping companies can empty their tanks onto fields. Big dairy and beef industrial farms actually have machines that inject the ‘poop’ into the ground, saving the nitrigen run-off and putting it into the farm fields.
    Up north, outhouses didn’t work very well because everything freezes right away, so many people (my midwife was one) used big buckets under the outhouse seat so they could empty it rather than let it build up to the seat level. I had a two seater, so I would just switch sides in the middle of winter!
    The things you really don’t want to know about!”

    Good to know…thanks for sharing!

      Oh Genny you would notice the color of the poop. hehehe I thought the same thing. My legs are short! I would never be able to hover over that!! Lol

  5. Hi! I was so happy to find this site! My husband and I are moving to the UK for a year. We will be bringing our 16 and 13 year old. Looking for a blog to help me pack…any ideas?

      Hi Diane! So great to hear from you and glad you like our site. I am so excited for your move to the UK! It will be an adventure that you will remember and treasure for a lifetime! We have what we brought detailed here. In the UK you can find everything as you would in the U.S. (medicine, clothes, shoes, school books) the only thing I would focus on is electronics and any specialty clothing you may need or enjoy using. We have heard from many of our fellow travelers that getting electronics, video games, iPad, iPhone, ect. is so much cheaper in the U.S. than anywhere else in the world and they are RIGHT. We thought being able to get this stuff in Hong Kong would be okay and the price is so much more expensive that it doesn’t seem worth it. We have been spoiled by Dell and Best Buy. πŸ™‚ There is also an awesome site about a family that biked north america! You can see what they packed. Not that you are biking North America but I found it interesting to see what they brought!! πŸ™‚ Happy Adventures!
