In case all of my positive stories are giving people travel envy, let me switch gears and say how SICK AND TIRED I AM OF COLD SHOWERS!! I have had the worst shower luck recently and it sucks. Not every shower has been cold, but enough have been and always the ones that are most important. Up in the mountains after a hard day’s trek, all a girl–currently covered in volcano ash–wants is a freakin’ hot shower. But no. Instead the water is freezing AGAIN and I’m out here in the hallway, still dirty, praying that in a few minutes enough hot water will be generated to let me wash my hair.
