News, but not the serious kind
Hey, save some ice water for us!
Yes, that’s the number one concern among folks planning trips overseas or to red states.
But couldn’t you broaden your travel advice a bit to write about something other than toilets?
Other than toilets? Like what?
Showers. I’m going to China in a week, and I want to be sure I can take nice long showers, just like I do at home.
That won’t be a problem. Here you can see a tourist taking a 90-bucket shower at his hotel in China.
Um, Blog Guy, how do they make sure the water is nice and hot?
Hot? You expect hot? Oh wait, you really had me going there for a minute. Well done!
You don’t understand. I’m staying in a five-star hotel.
So is this guy in the picture.
No, see, I have a semi-private room.
So does this guy. Those are his roommates waiting for their showers.
Yikes! Can I get a PRIVATE room?
Sure, if you don’t mind just the one bucket.
