Prime Minister Stephen Harper is no doubt experiencing culture shock on his trip to India. On the plane heading there his entourage dined on samosas and he told reporters, "I don't eat it that often, but I love Indian food."

The BBC has an article today on how Indians use their country as a public toilet. Here is an excerpt...

"Correspondents say spitting, urinating and defecating in public are a common sight across India, and in rural areas many people continue to go out in the open even when they have toilets at home because they prefer the outdoors...Officials say cultural and traditional factors, a lack of education and too few toilets are the prime reasons why millions of Indians defecate in the open." http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-india-20202339

It is suspected that Harper will return from the trip shaken.
