The AFCON 2019 is only a few days away; we can’t wait to watch the matches and cheer for our national team. However, with all the exciting preparations and the hype in the air, a question comes to mind, where are we going to take a piss? Wait, what? Yes, we’re dead serious. We spotted multiple public toilets around Cairo, and we’d have to say, it was pretty intriguing.
Behold *drumroll*, the brand new multitasking toilets! You all seen food trucks, right? Well, imagine that, with a ladies’ bathroom to the right and a mens’ bathroom to the left. Wait, there’s more. Are you ready? Wait for it, wait for it... There’s a gigantic screen on top of the truck where you can watch the AFCON matches in full swing. Can we hear a round of applause for the inventiveness, please?
So, imagine that you’re walking aimlessly and then BAM, you stumble upon a crowd, lining up not to pee, but to watch the game! Put that aside and imagine that nervous moment as you squeeze yourself in that tiny compartment and fix yourself on the toilet seat when all of a sudden, the ground starts shaking as Salah scores a goal! Just a tip from us to you, please give us a small screen in there so we don’t miss that glorious moment!
On the other hand, we still can’t get ourselves to understand the idea of having a food truck or a cafeteria squeezed in there. You know the famous Egyptian “ahwa 3al ree7a”? Well, there you go, a literal application of the word.
Now, it’s time to ask the real questions. Where can we find one of those wonders of Cairo?
You can find them around the Cairo Stadium area; in Mamdouh Salem street, Youssef Abbas street, Nasr street, and more.
It seems like this is going to be a truly memorable experience, an all-in-one kind of thing. Who’s up for it next Friday?
