World Toilet Day 2015

Nubian Toilet

You may know that today is World Toilet Day, a day to raise awareness for those who don’t have access to satisfactory sanitation!

Back in 2009, well before Instagram or Toilography was ever a thing, I spent 2 (amazing) weeks travelling through Egypt. I took a pic of this restroom which was the lone toilet shared among a Nubian village, on the western bank of the Nile just outside Aswan. Thankfully they were equipped with the porcelain fitting and running water but there are millions of people out there whose conditions are even worse.

If you’re interested, visit the folks at @un_water or worldtoiletday.info for initiatives and ideas on what can be done to help raise awareness. Happy WTD, everyone!!
