Hurray For a Hot Bath

After a sweaty day in the saddle, a good scrub is a necessity and I have become very adept at having a bath in a plastic bowl. The photo above shows my usual daily hot bath. Hot water is normally provided in a thermos wherever we stay, and cold water can be obtained from a tap or hose outside, or from a Shanghai jar inside.

Every so often we have the luxury of a shower. Some of the larger truck stops have shower rooms, and the photo below shows one of the grander ones, although the shower heads here were in fact taps! But who cares when the water is hot. Unfortunately at this premises the door to the shower room was only a curtain - as I did not want to give the truckers a nasty shock, Li May had to stand guard.
