Xixi na calcada inglesa...

Do you know that bad habit that some men have of peeing anywhere in the street after a night out with too many drinks? Well, in my town we have something to try to stop that. A pop up loo. Actually we had this ‘cool urinal’ for quite a while but I only managed to find the time to post it in the blog now.



Take a look. During the day it is hidden in the underground. It looks like just a manhole cover and we can walk on top of it.




But during the night it rises up and is ready for use. There is no much privacy of course, but the pop up loos are spotless clean and available when needed.
Do you think Brazil should implement the same urinals in some streets?



PS. Sorry about my absence from the blog. It was due to some personal issues with my family in Brazil. I love my life in England, but when there is a problem with our family that is so far away, life can become a bit complicated. I hope to find more time from now on. Please bear with me and thanks for reading.

  1. Sure, these "pop up loos" are amazing, a really great idea!!!!

    *Civility... one of advantages of living in a first world country.

    My new vocabulary:
    for quite a while
    urinal
    manage (in this context = gerir, conseguir - right or wrong?)
    manhole
    spotless
    when need

    *Many times when we want to use expressions such as "when need" or "for quite a while" we have no idea as write them because they are usually used in the day by day.

    Bye for now :D

    PS. How is your family doing? I hope everything is good!!!!

  3. Hi Angela, I meant to write ENGLISH, but I typed too fast and didn't notice my mistake above.
