Splish Splash for Hygiene, Fun and Making Friends

Yes, an odd title but ESN's  theme this week is "Splish Splash I was Taking a Bath",  (a song made famous by Bobby Darin back in 1958, but sung by others as well through the years).  I got to thinking of all the places I'd bathed in, like rivers and creeks high in the Rocky Mountains, plush and not so plush hotels all around Europe.  This was our shower in Rouffange (pop. roughly 93), France during my fountain rebuilding days (talk about hard work!)  Twelve of us shared this, talk about French ingenuity though, it worked great!
 
Then there's the "hammams" in Morocco.  Public bath houses where women went on certain days and men went on certain days.  This was quite the experience and me, being a sort of novelty, one of the ladies treated me to a scrub, that I can only describe as more painful than childbirth, well, almost.  But I sure had smooth skin!  You can imagine in bathing conditions such as these there are no vanities with toiletries we have come to count on here. Le Petit Marche has this lovely Four Piece Ceramic Bathroom Vanity Set for offer that will fit in a wide array of bathroom decors,  so stop on by and have a look.  Splish, splash!

  2. You've had some real experiences in your life. We do tend to take our life style for granted don't we?

  3. Awe to travel all over "Europe" and I have never been outside of the US. I loved your post and found the different bathing situations very interesting. The bathroom set would be the perfect addition to any bathroom. Thanks so much for sharing.
