comment OK we're all adults here, so really, how on earth should I use a squat toilet?
@hippietrail Oh man, haven't been on this site in a while! I did an undergrad in pre-med years ago, and during an Infections Disease class, we sampled all sorts of stuff including toilets. They were surprisingly clean (many bathrooms are typically cleaned often more often than say, gas station handles). Aside from anecdotal comments of getting warts, I think toilet seats are generally fine. There were some coliform bacteria (fecal), which wiping won't really help with... mostly, I just think the posters statement that a sitting toilet is better in every way is absolutely ridiculous.

comment Can Westerners use the free Wi-Fi at Guangzhou international airport?
Two years ago, I found one open wifi in the domestic terminal by the coffee shop near security (not actually owned by the coffee shop mind you, but I couldn't get a good connection anywhere else). Played me some Starcraft. However, I can't answer for international.

comment Travelling to Taiwan in September/October
@row1 You should also be aware of the number of tropical storms. They are frequent. Generally, there are between 25-30 tropical storms/typhoons per year! You should be fine in Taipei, but you can use one of the many foriegner website for more information. Tealit is the one I use: tealit.com/…
