Ready, Aim, Fire – Bathrooms on Kilimanjaro

At each camp, all the way up the mountain, there are little wooden bathrooms that basically give you the privacy of going to bathroom. There is no toilet seat, just a typical squat and drop, with a small hole. Even though it’s sometimes difficult to use these, you should try. For others, it’s unpleasant to hike up the mountain, and see remants of peoples shit and toilet paper left over, floating down the mountain. Take a walk outside any of your camps, within a few hundred yards, and watch out for landmines.

The biggest issue with some of these drop holes is that the hole (where your terds drop down) are super small. You need a good aim to drop a bomb down one of these tiny holes.
