At our hotel, we are all playing an extended game of hot water shower roulette. Shower at night and get hot water one day…before dawn another day. One shower starts out cold as ice, warms up and ends up burning hot…another starts out perfectly warm and ends up a trickle of freezing drips. While you are covered with soap and shampoo.
Of course, our patients from the jungle and from the Andes would laugh if we told them to spend their limited fuel budget on heating water for washing. How soft can a person be? It’s always important to be aware of our “first world problems” when we travel outside our comfort zone, both literally and figuratively.
Fingers crossed that I win on shower roulette tonight!
