THE RULES ARE DIFFERENT THERE
I have no idea whether or not this is the best way for you to actually see something, but I had to send this after your column a month or two ago about public etiquette. I live in Moscow, Russia, and receive your column by internet every week since it was dropped from the Moscow Times awhile back. Anyway, I think that public bathroom etiquette must be the final frontier in civilizations!
Even at the gorgeous, lush Bolshoi Theater, there are no seats on some of the toilets, as people just step on them anyway. Yes, go to any McDonald's or public restroom (women's anyway - can't speak for the guys. I would think that a urinal is a urinal), and there will likely be footprints on the toilet seat. Best I can figure is that they use the western style toilets as a squatty-hole-in-the-floor type. Go figure. And they DON'T wipe up the pee-pee that gets splattered about. In a smaller city outside of Moscow, in a newish mall type affair, I found the following in a public restroom. I had to take a picture of it.
Thanks for the laughter which your columns bring!
