When I first moved to the Philippines, I was a bit shocked when I saw people actually taking a shower in public.
A few weeks after I moved to the Philippines, I was going to go to a small town about an hour drive away, along with another expat friend of mine. His name is Mike. Mike picked me up in the morning at quite an early hour. After we had driven out of town, about 30 minutes from town or so, Mike told me that when he drove out in this area he liked to go at the same time each trip, and it was at a very early hour. I was a little puzzled, so I asked Mike why he did that.
Mike replied to me that along the route, coming up pretty soon, there was a place along the roadside where a quite beautiful young lady took a shower at the same time every day! Ha ha… I was looking forward to passing by that area, and Mike made sure that he kept us safe, by driving quite slow. Of course the real reason why Mike would slow down was to offer a better chance to view the “scenic” wonders of the area!
Well, after we drove by, I quickly learned that “taking a shower” might not be quite the scenery that I had been expecting. Mike had a good laugh, and we continued on with our day.
