The pipe going down, on the left, is the main drain into the sewer. As you slide right, you'll see:
a split off, that will go to drain the shower and sink, and on the far right, the toilet hole! Whoopee! We have an opening for the toilet to drain! :)

This is a Very Good Thing as we previously had NO access to this sewer pipe and if our sewer backed up, the only way to fix it would be to cut the pipe open. Now there's a handy little access port!
