Who knew that showering in South America could be so dangerous??? Well, let me introduce you to the South American electric shower.
It makes me shiver just thinking about it. I first came across one of these showers in Colombia. It is an electric shower, but not the normal electric shower you would come across in England. Instead of the electric cables being in a safe box or behind the wall, they run along the top of the shower. The cables are just there mixed in with all the water and shampoo. Not only that but these showers are never too high so you have to watch yourself when you put your arms up to wash your hair. A simple touch can give you the biggest shock!
