    ... to wash in the shower first and then soak in the tub. You could see the group's faces drop as we all realised we were going to be getting a bit more intimate than we imagined having only met the day before. We somehow found a very British solution though and, without discussing it, we managed to time things so that we each had the place to ourselves for a while.
