Return to sanitary sanity

The Goodlooguide has become somewhat moribund of late, so now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the party and recall the noble impulses which went to the making of this blog. So at the cost of repeating myself, let me remind you of what the blog undertook to feature in its first fine careless rapture:

1. A list of loos for those inconvenient moments in time and space, in all the major world cities. If you have any loos to recommend, please post the location in the ‘Comments’ section, giving full details about opening hours, tariffs, softness of loo paper and so on.
2. A rating of all major loos, on a scale of one to five.
3. The loo in history: nothing less than a comprehensive history of toilets and its impact on human civilization.
4. Loo Read: what to read in the loo and what has been written about loos in world literature
5. Loos of the future: a loo(k) at what the future holds in store.

We began well, by reporting extensively on loos at the 8B bus terminus, Jadavpur University and Anwar Shah Road. But then, for some obscure reason, we became obsessed with no. 5--loos of the future. Also, there was a brief but deplorable period of fascination with genitalia-shaped loos.

Time to return to sanitary sanity.

From this post onwards, the GLG will focus on specific areas of our fair city, with one neighbourhood covered per post. As before, please post all information under the ‘Comments’ section of the relevant neighbourhood.

For any tourists in San Francisco, Amreeka: You will bump into the pay-and-use loos (a green pillarbox scaled up 3 times, a quarter opens the door) as you walk out to the wharf from the Embarcadero BART station. However, if you want to be cheap (and don't fancy taking a leak in a green tin can) there are FREE loos at Pier 39 -- walk past the Hard Rock Cafe, towards the water, and the loo is off to your right.
