Sewers and toilets in Iquitos, Peru. (Part 2)

"I think I've got a lead on a story. A really good story. About toilets. I want to check out a few things, but if this pans out we'll have a fantastic article for the June issue."

As a traveler I encounter many strange alternatives to my assumptions about good and bad, right and wrong, the way it should be and the way others do things. I'm not at all "non-judgmental" over things I see. I hate with some deep passion so-called cultural relativism, a girls' view of post-war Europe and a cheap M.A. thesis in one. There is right and good, wrong and bad. Bad water is bad, and it comes often from lack of proper sewerage.
