It started in LA and ended in Monterey it was a bus/train tour. It was my one and only real train ride. I loved it! I don't consider the subway a real train;)

My worst ever was in China, ..... The bathroom was worse than you can even imagine (and I've seen some bad ones).I got so sick that in Shanghai I had a (103+/degree) fever.I hope the trains are better now.

The bathrooms haven't really improved

I wonder if samsara2 (Eve) knows about the "squat toilets" that she'll be encountering throught most of Asia. Better strenthen those thigh muscles

The ones in China don't seem to be cleaned very often. At times, there is no water and the blowflies are horrendous. Incidentally, tissue is very rarely supplied . Enjoy

The subway system in New York City during rush hour is a trip within itself

Actaully I have found the perfect way to combat unwanted squat toilets and holes and out houses and long drops, it really an ingenious discovery on my part

Just don't do it. ;)

Really all you need to do is hold it in indefinitely, problem solved!

Don't eat ... then you shouldn't need to go. This is where Imodium is useful

Isnt Imodium only helpful after the fact? Or is it also preventive?? BTW, I am not being sarcastic here...I actually really would like to know
