Everyone seems to be intrigued by Shannon's latrine, so here it is!  It is the small (6" diameter) hole in the bottom of the picture.  The hole leads down to a large tank in the ground via a curved pipe.  Shannon is holding the plastic liter cup used to "flush" by pouring water down the hole. 

The latrine area is attached to the back of Shannon's hut, accessible only from the back door of the hut.  It is enclosed by a high wall and is open to the sky. 

It's really a good system -- it doesn't smell at all, but yes is a very small hole.
