How to shower in Morocco – Travel and Learn
Learning when you travel is part of the adventure. Whether you try to or not..learning is a part of the process. This is especially true for the kids!
No matter where we travel outside the United States, the bathroom fixtures are always a part of the learning process. Sometimes the button on the top of the toilet is for flushing and sometimes there is a chain hanging from way up high that you pull to flush. Sometimes you step on something on the floor to flush and sometimes….there is just a hole in the floor and no flushing is required! I think the strangest thing we’ve encountered is the toilet paper on the outside of the bathroom…..take some before you even enter. Hmm….
Using the bathtub and shower is often an interesting experience, too. In the United States, the faucets are always the same. The hot water is on the left and the cold water is on the right. Sometimes they are labeled H for hot and C for cold.
Ever wonder why the cold is always on the right? Once upon a time there was only one pump…and it was on the right because most people are right handed. When the new addition of hot water came along…it went on the left because the right was already spoken for! Now, it is actually part of the plumbing code that the hot water knob is on the left.
But, when you travel abroad….the information you use at home to decide which knob is hot and which one is cold isn’t that useful.
If you’ve ever had to explain a bidet to kids….or look forward to doing it one day, you’ll love the video on our experience in Morocco. Click the link below to enjoy the video and learn from our experience!
We found Morocco to be one of the most colorful and interesting places we’ve been! If Morocco is on your bucket list check out these articles:
