In some bathrooms, we have found the porcelain sinks broken-off the wall. The Afghans would climb on the sink to wash their feet! The Afghans are crazy about keeping their feet clean. They can regularly be seen with a bottle of water washing their feet. Instead of sinks attached to the wall, we now build ‘troughs’ that are fixed to the floor and can support several men standing on them. We also build “ablutions,” a kind of public restroom, on the ANA installations for the Afghans to wash their feet.
