Some Countries With The Most Tourists Have The Worst Rest Rooms

Countries with the greatest number of tourists are listed in order in a report by the United Nations World Tourism Organization.

1. France
2. United States
3. Spain
4. China
5. Italy
6. United Kingdom
7. Turkey
8. Germany
9. Malaysia
10. Mexico

The blog "The Titanic Awards" has a courageous, if unscientific list of nine countries with "the worst" public rooms here. Oddly enough, France, Italy and Mexico occur on both lists, producing plenty of scope for humor and possibilities to start new lists, starting at the worst:

1. China
2. India
3. France
4. Italy
5. Thailand
6. Egypt
7. Turkey
8. Mexico
9. Indonesia

Is there any agreement on this? I doubt it. While many, if not most of my precious viewers would beg to differ, the point is...it's important to renovate public rest rooms whether or not tourists flock simply to promote good health. Bathrooms are thought of as indicators of general living standards and governments write laws and codes about them. 'Nuff said.
