What's Up Germany Wednesday?
I would like to start this post with a conversation between my parents and I when they visited.
Me: And here is where you take a shower...
Dad: Where is the curtain?
Me: There isn't one.
Dad: How does the water stay off the floor and not cause mold, and get everything all wet?
Me: It doesn't.
See, for some reason, Germans (and I think this applies to most other Europeans too but correct me if I am wrong) don't believe in shower curtains. They let Sankt Niklaus come and leave oranges and peanuts in your kids shoes in December but they refuse to believe in the benefits of keeping water IN the shower.
Here is a pic of the towel we lay down to prevent some of the water from getting everywhere but as you can see (although faintly) it didn't help much. There is still water beyond the scope of the towel and all over the bathtub.
Any of you have shower curtains in your Wohnung?
