The only thread (that I have found at WR) referring to my question is this one http://forum.wordreference.com/showt...hygiene&page=2 but I don't think the general question was really answered there. That's why I've decided to start a new thread. I hope no one minds it and that I don't break any rules. (If so, I am sorry .)
My family's acquaintance went, as an exchange student, to Belgium (just for a short time - maybe one or two weeks). She's been talking about it recently and told us that she had a shower every day (which, I thought, everyone must consider normal and usual!) when she was in Belgium, in the host family and on the day of her departure for the Czech Republic the host family gave her a small present - a set of sponges (for bathing) (+ maybe some soaps etc.) - saying that she must love water and showering when she has a shower every day!
When the girl from Belgium came to the Czech Rep., she showered only two times a week (at least this is what my friend said). Moreover, they went on trips etc. and showering only two times a week, when you're sweaty, seems to be a little .... "unusual" to me.
What do you think about it?
How often do you usually have a shower? Do you find it normal to have a shower every day? Or even twice a day?
(By the way, I'm sorry for my English and all the mistakes I've made. Feel free to correct me, please! )
