Shower Songs

After moving in February, I sorely missed the built-in radio that was in the bathroom of my last apartment. I was not able to find one here in Korea. Well, that's not 100% true - one of my friends helped me search on some Korean shopping sites, and he found some that were clearly designed for children. Frog radios, fish radios, etc. So I got this one in the USA (yet it is a Japanese brand). Now I can listen to the radio again in my shower.

Speaking of showers, I think I mentioned in a previous post that the bathroom attached to my bedroom doesn't have a separate shower stall. Instead it has the common Asian-style shower - the WHOLE bathroom is your shower. I thought I was going to hate that, but it really is just fine. In fact, I've only once used the second bathroom that has a real shower stall.

But where do you put your dry towel while you shower. That was a problem when I was in Asia. Not to mention the wet toilet seat!

Wet toilet seats don't bother us men too much. As for the towel, this bathroom, while no spacious, is a bit larger than the Asian hotel. I installed a towel rack on the far wall from the shower head, and I haven't had a problem. That said, the built-in towel rack is almost directly under the shower head. Go figure.
