Where is this stall with paper? BYOTP
indeed. It usually costs at least a few pesos from the lady or security guard outside the stalls.
Just stash paper in your gear, or in a jacket pocket. A roll of paper towels works well.
This is one thing thing assumed by many people that will take a short getting used to.
After that, no prob.
I'm bigtime. I can afford a few pesos.
(and mz tedder wouldn't go for paper towels)
Yea no kidding I was wondering that myself??? A Mexican stall with paper?
he must have been in fantasy land.....
The stalls always have a toilet paper holder but never have toilet paper...
Si! And the agua is always caliente!
So...speaking as somone who's never ridden south of the border and was hoping to learn something.
2 pages of "advice" and all you can say is
"don't drink the water"
is there any chance you all mis-understood the OPs question?
How is "don't drink the water" not advice?
we also said, words don't mean anything, and take your own TP.
The cops are ALWAYS trying to squeeze you for money, and you probably didn't do anything wrong, or if you did, they didn't see it, and they're banking that you'll fold. Don't fold. THey're bluffing. Always.
Don't be an asshold and don't be a tourist. Soft targets are easily spotted and hustled.
Use your hand, wash in sink, India/Nepal style. Left hand only please.
If the sink doesnt work, they usually have a hose outside.
Ah Mexico and the TP sales at the door of the banos.Mas!...Mas!...!
Some countries in South East Asia, that's what they supplied you with for table napkins, TP. They had a nifty plastic holder/cover just for that. Remove the center cardboard roller, put cover on and then pull the TP out from the center.I watched many tourists, myself included pull a (long) lenght out and head for the squatter.
The typical table napkin in Mexico, just not up to the task....carry TP always.Trying to remember if they sell TP by the roll in Mexico,I think so but may be confused with Asia in my recollections.
Looks like I may be finding out again for myself this winter after too many years.
A few years ago my wife was asked in NYC if we have TV's and VCR's down here.
Yes, toilet paper became available by the roll recently. It's not popular though as it's hard to transport by donkey, and we can't reach the roll holder on the wall because our 6ft sombreros and ponchos get in the way.
Such an improvement from the ferocactus.
Just keep some on ya.
Might be needed along the side of a road at somtime.
Just part of life.
The "I'm gonna backhand you" gesture actually means thank you. No, really. It's used pretty frequently in traffic too - if you let a car go in front of you or if you allow a pedestrian to cross you'll probably see this.
This guy probably means something else though:
Donkeys still???? Good if they only have to move TP now, them were moving heavier stuff.I like donkeys....and still laughing!
Had to steal my old pics back from Arte's thread.
They'll come and visit...if you hang around the deserted beaches north of Zihuataneo, may be the only living thing you'll see all day.And no problems disposing of wastes there the hermit crabs were all over it at night, clickety click....gone by the next day.
You're a tougher hombre than me if you use hermit crabs as toilet paper. Me, I prefer to keep crabs as far away from my gentleman's parts as possible. Especially if they're big enough to reach out and steal your dinner rolls
