I haven’t kept you up to date on my bathing situation. So there’s a shower in the Senhor Director’s house, it is a cold shower. When I get into it in the morning, sometimes a chilly morning, I need to put my hand in a few seconds, followed by three shallow quick breaths followed by a jump in with my head under the water while I rub the cold water on my chest and shake off the convulsions that my body releases to convey its displeasure with my decision to do this yet again. So I usually only take the one shower a day, even if my feet are smelly before I go to bed (Chaco’s). If it weren’t for hygiene and body odor I’d steer clear of the cold shower. Soon enough I’ll be taking bucket baths again in my own house.
