Sent in from our Menorcian corespondent "Madre", here we have the perfect example of badly planned toilet building.
Situated in Canclementa, Menorca, this unisex toilet is used by patrons of a stable that has been converted into a bar. It is quite an elitist toilet as you can only get in if you wiegh around 2 and a half stones.

The toilet paper dispenser is about three thousand light years away from the toilet itself, leading me to beleive that woman built this bar toilet, bearing in mind that we usualy hover in public.

Please do not ask me how Madre managed to get this terribly alarming bowl it worries me imensely..somebody clean that pan...ARGH!

Two weeks ago, I went to this restaurant with my coworkers in Chia-yi City in Taiwan. I found this elegant toilet for women. There are two choices in this toilet as you can tell. I like the idea of hanging some orchids on the wall and the fact that it is very clean in this loo.Have a look at the fourth photo. The light and the ornaments above the sink outside the loo is gorgeous. By the way, PM of Mikeham told me that it's World Toilet Day today. More than 2.6 billion people elsewhere in the world don't have toilets. Hence,we shouldn't take our toilets for granted.

Amazing innit. I found this one in the public loo's beneath Great Portland Street underground station, and frankly we've become firm friends recently - it's got me out of a few sticky wickets. The decor...well you don't get more 70's than those tiles but then the toilets are really well kept, by most standards anyway so i can only assume they're well loved by us patrons. Another wall mounted siphon (thanks James lol) with a good chain - i'm still a big fan of that. It's so much more gratifying than those button push things.I really don't think i'd like to come here when it's dark outside though...

I spotted this toilet in a restaurant of Tainan City in Taiwan.I like the colour scheme of the loo---ocean blue, it's the same with the eye colour of my favourite man on earth. The restaurant owner put the men and the women's toilet together to spare some space. However, it's not a brilliant idea since people have to queue for the loo.

I found this frankly shabby looking lav in a pub called The Crooked Billet in Clapton, a few weeks ago now. There was of course, no toilet roll...and i do remember slipping in there and nearly hitting the urinals head on. There's not a great deal to you can probably see! The tank was up high and wall mounted - a design classic of the highest order in my book. They just don't make them like they used too (especially not with the wonderous crustations that thing had formed!!)...but the bog was a little newer so exitement levels leveled off rather quickly. Yes, i was THAT in awe of a wall mounted tank.
Anywho, the pint was flat and the locals weird, and luckily i need never go there again. Give me an amen to that....
