This is the regular stop in the middle of Chott El Jerid. The place where you can buy the best dates in Tunisia and it's also known for the famous fish boat that stands in the middle of the salt lake.
Those picturesque toilets are probably photographed as much as the boat. Standing in the middle of the desert they promise you normal comfort :) I can't tell, didn't use it, but maybe some of you have experienced it's commodity :)
I added to WS the other part, more luxurious :)

Beautiful image, full of humor. But I understand that you did not experience to verify what meant here "normal"!
Have a nice WE, amicalement

Great! Your photo made me laugh - what better could a photo do...!?
Have a nice weekend! Greetings from Germany - under the first snow!

And you only have a choice of two out of three by the look of it. The light peeping out of the normal gives a nice effect.

Thanks for this very humourus picture. Good POV.
A long time ago I crossed the Chott El Jerid but then there were no facilities at all ...
Best regards, Paul

I like this humouristic shot.
I class this picture in my theme : “Toilettes et WC”

Hello Snezana! How funny :))) And no, I have no experience yet and it is my first time I come over these toilets but I am sure everybody loves to take a little souvenir home and takes a photo. I like that one door is open and that we can see some light. This was a good move and makes the picture even more special. Take care, best regards, Barbara.

I also added your photo to a theme dedicated to this probably the most famous toilet in the world :-)
Comparing to the photos taken few years earlier the building looks a bit worn out. It's time for renovation.

Image insolite et pleine d'humour, j'ose à peine imaginer le confort "particulier" des ces WC.
trabuio (1881) 2008-11-22 14:37
a very funny image!
I hope you will have nice week end too!
Vasa (16612) 2008-11-22 16:53

Impressive and funny image from this "imposing" place with effective composition. Talkative shot. Have a nice weekend!
fanni (13944) 2008-11-23 3:42
this is a really funny and unusual photo :) Good observation! It makes me laugh :) But this is part of daily Life, too, isn't it? This kind of life exists... somewhere...!
Interesting WS, too ;)
Clementi (52514) 2008-11-23 23:37
nice shot,a photo indeed unicxa and very funny, I like the different indications.
will it be comforting?
hispic (9619) 2008-11-24 1:33
Comfortable? paper, water or sand? what means "normal". I must go there to confirm it. TFS of such a enjoyable shot.
tapdur (47) 2008-11-24 2:26

quite funny this one, this is what we expected on TE, creative and original shot.
ilvao (2304) 2008-12-01 4:21
great idea, well framed
congratulations - olivier
Dragut (36) 2008-12-07 8:02
Bon coup d'oeil. Pour le confort je crois qu'il faudra repasser une autre fois......
CLODO (26450) 2008-12-07 11:45
Travels make photographs open their eyes to discover new worlds. Good shot showing the true life abroad, not on postcards
riclopes (35567) 2008-12-10 0:35
haha, a very funny one Sneza. One of those cases that the highlight of the touristic place is so important as the 'backstage'. I would guess that 'normal' must be a hole on the ground and in 'confort', one can seat. In such places, the 'normal' is actually more safe ;-) A very good post along with the 'delux' WS.
Have a nice day,
marietom (34607) 2008-12-23 14:10
très originale, cette composition, colorée, et amusante.
daddo (20639) 2009-01-16 2:40
Comfort I understand, but normal makes me wonder. What is the alternative? Anyway, interesting capture. Pozdrav. Klaudio.
kiks (11601) 2009-01-16 7:07
;-)) Indeed it doesn't seem very confortable but i guess is what we are used to have ;-))
ge-dupuy (198) 2009-02-05 19:47
Le confort!Normal! oui! j'ai la même au milieu de nul part en bord de route. Merci pour ton commentaire. Gé
bernardec (2235) 2009-02-06 9:57
