Why to insist on a bath in Bolivian hotels

Does this need explanation? At least this hotel owner bothered to attach an earth wire, and took the time to wrap the connections with tape.

Advantages of these Brazilian-made showers, which are common throughout South America are these:
- hot water

Disadvantages are these:
- it's only a trickle
- it starts cold

- it might kill you

I don't have the statistics and I don't really want to know
