In light of this H1N1 scare we have had and the resultant deluge of advice on how to stay clean, I have an idea. It goes along with the advice that the government has been giving us. That is to wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds after using the bathroom. Then using the paper towel with which you have dried your hands to open the bathroom door.
Whenever you leave a bathroom in Mexico which has no toilet seat, no toilet paper, no running water, no soap and/or no paper towels, stop and ask the manager of the restaurant, bar or even gas station why these items necessary for good hygiene are missing? You might even mention that the Dept of Health has recommended that these items are necessary in every bathroom in Mexico.
I would like to hear from those of you that follow this advice. What was the response?
