During my numerous visits to
In the old country, we got rid of the bathtub when we renovated the bathroom, as we practically never used it.
In our new home, we have both a tub (with a shower over it) and a shower cubicle. After two weeks I still cannot get the water as warm as I want. You need a higher degree in engineering to master it. In the shower, there are taps and levers, and whichever way you turn them they won’t listen. I ventured a bath the other day, and there are two taps for cold and hot, which I cannot adjust. For the washbasin, there are two separate outlets for cold and hot, so you cannot wash your hands in temperate water.
I am sure I will get used to it eventually, but right now it feels like a devastating clash between two cultures.
