Eco House Toilet near Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria

Whilst out on my epic search for new properties in and around Veliko Turnovo yesterday for Yantra Homes ever increasing portfolio of quality Bulgarian Real Estate, in North Central Bulgaria, I stumbled upon an outside latrine in a village very close to Pavlikeni, in the District of Veliko Tarnovo. It dawned on me that due to the colour and vividness of this timber box latrine it could most certainly be a pictorial CD cover for the Johnny Cash timeless classic "ring of fire"!

A "Bulgarian pit-toilet" modernised using a wooden box surround
and a second-hand toilet seat and lid, indeed classified as an eco-toilet
since the materials were all found at a local rubbish tip!

The toilet is located in a garden only a stones throw away from the Bulgarian House, it is based upon the "pit method"of disposing of human waste products, and so long that it is not located near any water wells in the plot, it is a tried and tested way of disposing of human waste. One must remember however, not to put "toilet paper" down these pit latrines, instead place in a covered container and use as fire lighters in your wood-burner during the winter or throw with your waste during the Summer, or for the more adventurous try composting!

Spare a thought for the inhabitants of some African slums who have to put up with "flying toilets" not as sanitary as a pit since it basically consists of plastic disposable shopping bags being filled with excrement, tied up by their handles and thrown with the same poise as a shot-putter as far from the shanty room as possible!

However, should you be interested in buying a house in Bulgaria with an indoor vitreous ceramic pan and water cistern, then why not contact me!
