To this day, I still don’t know whether to be severely annoyed or severely pleased that the vast majority of toilets in Côte d’Ivoire are simply without seats. Even in fancy restaurants or the international airport, there are no seats. It is without a doubt much more difficult to do your business when there is no seat on a toilet. Then again, the seats in Côte d’Ivoire are all these crappy plastic Chinese seats that, if attached are always filthy, so even when there is a seat, it’s illusory at best. That’s why I brought my own seat for my house which was a fantastic weight expenditure.
But, even still, it’s always weird when you walk in to a bathroom such as the one pictured below in one of my favorite bars in Abengourou and see that there has been a case of seatjacking. I’m just thankful that I’m a guy. I guess the ladies get creative.
