Small Gripe with Chile


From my perspective, there are only a couple negative aspects about Chile: it is tough to stretch a dollar, and the washroom situation is horrendous.


How can an entire country be so complacent about washroom design and function!?


If you find a washroom in Chile which supplies toilet paper and soap, you should count your lucky stars… If there is one thing that is down right horrifying, it is when a restaurant washroom doesn’t supply soap. I’m no hypochondriac, but it really makes me wonder about how sanitary the food prep is… Now, don’t get me wrong, these kinds of amenities are pretty sparse throughout a lot of countries in South and Central America, but in a country like Chile, which prides itself on meeting “Western Standards”, and charging equivalent prices to Canada, washrooms need to be stocked with toilet paper and soap.


When’s the last time you went out for a nice dinner in Canada, and brought your roll of T.P. and a bar of soap? Somehow these things go overlooked here.
