That teased slices of coconut husk are used as menstrual pads and toilet paper is unknown in Australia to virtually everybody (pun intended. Ouch!).

Lae Top Town has no public toilet at all. People have to catch a bus to Eriku to take a toilet break and I believe the street thugs at Eriku picked up on this. Needless to say there's never a single member of the RPNGC in sight, unless they're cruising through in 'their' Toyota Land Cruiser looking out for the 'real criminals'.

What do police and public toilets have in common in PNG?

They're never around where and when you need them.

Thanks so much, Keith. The link at the end has several pics to remind readers of toilet experiences in PNG!
