Bathing or Shower?—the way of washing your body ( James, Taiwan)
In 2006-2007, my family hosted Luis who is a high school exchange student from Brazil. We got along with each other very well. And the life styles between us are different, such as the bathing.
How do you wash your body? any reasons?
People in Taiwan, take a shower every day, and love to soak their body in a bathtub sometimes, and enjoy hot spring in winter. In my hometown, Ilan County, we also have cold spring to enjoy.
When do you take a shower or bath?
In Taiwan, we take an everyday shower in the evening, before going to bed.
And Luis (Brazilian) took his shower in the morning, after getting up, and he doesn’t seem to like a bath or hot spring. And he screamed when he soaked his body in the cold spring bathtub (Cold spring is really weird, you will have an icy feeling even the temperature is 22 degree C ).
Cold spring is a spring water which temperature is 22 degree C, both bathable and drinkable，only two places, Taiwan and Italy, have the cold spring.
