In the United States urinating in public is a crime. In the Netherlands it’s often encouraged! I was extremely surprised stumbling upon these very, very public restrooms. I have enough trouble peeing in public restrooms as it is, let alone doing so in front of everyone outside. All in all, I think this makes a lot of sense. We shouldn’t make going to the bathroom the taboo that we do, but this still stuck out to my American eyes. When you have to go, you have to go and I’m sure these save a great deal of water.
