Have you ever stopped to think about a simple question and found the answer to be much more complex and wonderful than you ever could have imagined?
And that that answer leads to yet more questions?
This was precisely my situation when I moved to London.
I was a drama student, a perpetual tourist, and a person who needed to do what we all must and use a toilet.
I often found the toilet door barred by a 30p entry charge, and I would sometimes spend hours trying to avoid this. I started to learn the work-arounds and the secret free toilets in London. Why, after all, should I pay for something that’s a perfectly natural function?
Then one day I started to wonder about the politics of paying to pee. Where does the money go? Why is it free in some places and not others? Should it be a human right?
These questions started to open up new avenues and I found myself plunged into a whole new world.
I became the Loo Lady and toilets became my life.
Today I’m going to take you on a journey around my London and share my stories with you.
In order for us to keep up with each other you’re going to need to follow some simple rules:
Once you start walking keep going straight on until I tell you otherwise.
The next track should play automatically . But if it doesn’t you can manually play the next track.
Let’s give this a test run…
Face the river.
Now turn left.
If you do it right you’ll hear my voice again when you get to the steps of the bridge.
