Hot water in Guatemala

If there is one thing I know, it is that water and electricity don’t mix; at least not in a good way.

Although I was aware of these hot water contraptions before arriving in Central America, that knowledge didn’t make stepping into an electrified shower any less unnerving. That switch on the front is the temperature control, which I left set at a comfortable “whatever the last person brave enough to touch it” left it on.

    Since you lived to write this post, I assume it was not a “shocking” experience.

    Very Nice Wireing Job. I dont think I would have moved the control either. Being an electrican all my work life I would not even think twice about it.May be a sponge bath?

    I’m so glad I didn’t know what that contraption was when traveling throughout South America. I’m also glad that I’m short enough I don’t have to worry about accidentally brushing agains it.
