My World Tour - Toilets Around the World!!!
Your crack reporters have been Johnny on the spot scouring the world for the breaking stories on toilets. We ask that anyone who has an interesting photo of a loo, will email us with the photo, which we will gladly give credit for.
Here are our latest and greatest updates from the top with India, Nepal, Tibet, and New Zealand.
