Vietnam’s Lesson on Happiness

Our tour guide explained why toilets/restrooms/comfort rooms are called the “happy room” in Vietnam.

“There are four things which make a person happy,” he said. “One, sleeping. Two, eating. Three, sex. Four, relieving yourself in the toilet.”

“Before coming to the toilet, you are very unhappy. After the toilet, you are very happy.”

Life’s simple truth.
