Heels to Hand Washing

Best invention in Madagascar is by far the “po”, an indoor toilet to use at night.  Since many people believe witches are walking about after the sun goes down, everyone locks their doors and windows upon sunset.  This presents the problem of relieving oneself at night since there are not indoor toilets in most houses.  Got diarrhea from your host neny’s  dinner or forget to treat your water ? NO PROBLEM! Just drop it like it’s hot in your po (not to be confused with the English word “poo”) and pour it out in the kabone (“real” outdoor toilet) in the morning! Don’t worry, there’s a cover to mask any smell. :-)
