Nepal 2012 Better than an Outhouse

Sometimes ostomates think of their ostomy as a disadvantage or inconvenience
but our experience trekking in Nepal says otherwise.
Some trekkers would say that dealing with an ostomy would be better than dealing with an outhouse.

Living and traveling with other trekkers 24 hours a day for 36 days, we talked about many things ... including the most basic of human functions. Everyone on our team was aware of my ostomy. Many people graciously struggled to adapt to the toilet facilities.

So, knowing what it takes with an ostomy, and looking at the outhouse pictures, I think many would prefer an ostomy to an outhouse. 

Maybe not permanently, but just for a few select occasions :)
