Things to Know When Using the Toilet in Spain

1) Expect to have toilet paper, soap and paper towels but never all three in any one bathroom. And many times none of the above. 

2) If you plan on spending more than 2 minutes in the stall, know your surroundings because the lights are on a timer and will leave you in the dark slapping the wall to find the switch. If the light switch is outside the door into the room with the sink, memorize where the doors are so you can get out both doors in the dark. 

3) Never get in front of an older woman who is in desperate need of the toilet. Though you tell her you don’t understand Spanish, she goes on and on about her health issues, pantomiming the details of her ailments. 

So, now you know.
