>Italy has many palazzos (palaces). Any place requires a throne, and as a result, the toilets in Italy are built on a grander scale than anywhere else I have been. In the bathroom in our hotel room, the toilet is so high that my feet do not touch the ground if I center my ass on the seat. I feel like a kid, swinging my legs back and forth as I do my business. Worse, when I went to the bathroom on the train that I took from Roma to Firenze, I had to stand on my tip toes so that I could squat over the pot to do my business while the train was moving. Given the circumstances, I feel like I did a very good job and earned another notch for peeing under challenging circumstances. Bring me my crown for the throne!
