no afraid its not safe to use the toilet in Spain yet, so:
1) go before you leave; and
2) take a large cork

"canadian", "carol", whoever the hell you are... you're a loser and a pathetic troll. So, take a hike in your wilderness and leave Spain and the USA for real travelers with class.

I just returned from Canada. And boy are they glad that Americans are spending money in their country. To them Sept 11th was a blessing because so many Americans have been vacationing there since the tragedy instead of going to Europe or Asia.

Carol from Manitoba, Canada, & Canadian, why are you canucks so dense and envious of everyone? Just be grateful for the fun-loving Americans that are so forgiving of your ignorance, that they provide great moral and financial support for your otherwise never mentioned country. The Roots Corporation in Canada is owned and operated by 2 Americans that provided your olympic gear and hundreds of jobs to Canadians. The gold medal was also handed to you by the Americans after they made such a big stink over the russians & french screwing you. Why do the Americans always have to come to your rescue? You ungrateful slugs!

Carol, you have never been to Spain! You are the same stupid person from stupid Canada that has been bashing Spain since last year. You are always making something up against this beautiful country because you are a racist and a lunatic! Having just returned from 2 lovely weeks in Spain, I would recommend this wonderful, cultural country to everyone. And, I found no problems with the toilets, anywhere! I would prefer the spaniards over the canadians, anyday!

I am the real Carol from the above address. The above, and several other posts are trolls impersonating me. I quit posting under my real name and defunct email address when I became frightened of the threatening nature of their responses, and the tone of their impersonations. Posts from the [email protected] on and after August 2, 2002 are likely not me. They are from a troll who wants to stir up trouble. Read my posts prior to that date and you will get a sense of who I am. I am not anti-American or anti-Spanish and I do not set out to deface this forum.

For the record, some of the most revolting toilets/loos/lavs/potties/conveniences I have EVER had to deal with were at the rest-stops along I-95 on the American east coast. American women seem to think they need not actually SIT on the seat, that it's okay to stand over it and spray, and they never clean up after themselves.

Be warned: I always look carefully at the person leaving the stall I'm about to enter. If you left me an unpleasant surprise, I will come find you and point out your oversight publicly and LOUDLY.

If only I could snap my fingers and have a sign appear inside the stall door of every ladies' room toilet reading

IF EVERYONE SITS DOWN, THE SEAT WILL NEVER BE WET.

The racist TROLL from Canada may in fact be "Eddie". I have seen other rubbish from this mucous on other threads. He seams to be using aliases but his tone is always anti-american and may include other nationalities. I have found the americans and spanish to be very hospitable.

A search through Fodor’s for carol’s e-mail [email protected] revealed a thread entitled “Ladies—Spain wahsroom alert”, that was begun by the same carol that started this post. Below is the full text of the opening line.

Author: carol ([email protected])
Date: 06/03/2002, 11:34 am
Message: I was in Andalucia last month, and only once did I encounter a public washroom which had paper and soap and towels. Most are missing at least two of these. Several did not have functioning water faucets as well.

In addition, the ladies do not sit (perhaps the lack of paper) and so there is usually pee on the seat. This was the case in restaurants, museums, etc. Make sure you carry some tissues and Purell with you at all times.

The reason I posted this is because there is someone who posted under “xxx’ who claims to be the real carol, saying someone has impersonated her and said “Read my posts prior to that date and you will get a sense of who I am. I am not anti-American or anti-Spanish and I do not set out to deface this forum.”

Ok, so the real carol I have read your previous post and it still seems derogatory towards Spain. I have a hard time believing either one of you, and wish you would just leave your opinions like this to yourself.

Would a Port-a-Potty work in Spain?

The toilets are so clean in Spain the Virgin Mary herself would be honored to take a dump in them.

Real Carol again. Anyone who can read would note that my comments in the prior thread never criticized the the Spanish, only their wash rooms. Since I was in mainly tourist areas, it could have been Australians, Germans, or Brits that peed on the seat. One of the worst was in a little place that we became regulars at because we loved the owners and staff, who all were Spanish.

If others like to have a dry seat and wash their hands, it would be good advice to tell them to take some hand cleaner and tissues. My intention was kindness, not criticism.

Hey! Carol is impersonating me! And her hands still smell like poopoo from her visit to Spain! She is going to give me a bad reputation.
