Ah yes, Machu Picchu, I did not know thee, nor will I ever…
Not that I was busy booking my visit, but now I know (for 100% sure) I will never see your dry stone walls in person..for real.
Why you may ask?
Well, it seems there are no lavatories.
Yes, I’m one of those people..
Boat ride? (Does it have a head?)
Bus tour? (How ’bout that little bathroom in the back- is it working?)
Hike up the mountain? (Where are the port-o-johns?)
You see the minute I know there is no restroom, I gotta go..it’s that simple.
And yes..I get it- it’s all in my head but that’s just the way I’m wired. So when I read recently that several European tourists may face jail time for “taking care of business” at the sacred Machu Picchu site..well, I’m just guessing they had no other options.
I need options.
So strike that historic Peruvian sanctuary off my bucket list..
Unless I can carry one with me. 😉
