Open Defecation Free Myagdi District sign (Nepal)

This rather funny sign means that it is forbidden to poop in the open.­

They put this sign because this is the Annapurnas trekking Route, frequented by many tourists, and presumably they think tourists do not like when local Nepali people relieve themselves in nature.­ They also built basic toilets every couple of Km along the road, but those are already in disrepair and have no water.­

There is of course no Nepali Poop Police (in fact, barely any Police at all!), and this regulation is not enforced.­ I had diarrhea when i was there, and I had no problem pooping in the open :)
