Toilets in China:

The Tomb of the Martyrs of the Guangzhou Commune W.C. is highly communal. This is a men's facility, they have separate areas for functions #1 and #2. The water flows from the large tank, where it can be used for washing your hands (you do have your hepatitis immunizations up to date, right?), through the open trough, then under the porcelain floor-mounted units.
