I made my way to the shower 'cell' to find several apparently useless devices that only managed to emit a dribble of cold water in a room full of bugs. Although this was not the first time I had experienced a rubbish shower (and would certainly not be the last!) on this trip, my frustration was further exacerbated by a mocking and giggling Helen who later experienced ...
