No. 0944 The holy grail of public restrooms

A full roll of clean toilet paper.

Yes ladies. Finding TP in a washroom stall in Egypt is Fabulous.
I have to say it is getting better than when I first visited here over 10 years ago, but there are still many spots where ladies who are hired to clean the stalls keep the toilet paper all to themselves (I once checked a washroom and no toilet paper was to be found ANYWHERE, and then - light of lights - I saw behind me a closet door partially opened and inside was a treasure trove of toilet paper stockpiled all the way to the ceiling). I had a quip once with one of the cleaning ladies and she explained to me that they keep the toilet paper to themselves to avoid people making a mess with it, though I think it's more likely to extract the non-mandatory tip.
