Beijing Amusement WC

#82 Shit

This are the bizarre shapes of the public toilets in the Chaoyang Park (the biggest in the city) in Beijing. One of the (many) funny things is that they really smell as hell (even for chinese standards) and people still in long queues during the day without even notice that. Those WC are in the middle of a big amusement area and only by the smell you can recognize them as a toilets otherwise them are not different from the other attractions. This kind of situation are made by the Chin Gov during the late 90's trying to copy and imitate the western Disneylands in europe or US; copying symbols, characters and anything they can steal from our (west) imaginary who (for them) make us special and modern. Doing that many things are missing and the grotesque meet the metaphysic of the situations.
