Hotel Rincon de Belen

The curtain and wall.

The view

The TV

This is something I'd never come across until I got to South America. It's an electric shower. Basically, cold water runs into the showerhead, and the showerhead heats it quickly so that by the time it falls out, the water should be nice and warm. Sometimes they work, most of the time all you get is a frustrating dribble of luke-warm water (the more water you try to push through, the less it is heated). Also of interest in this example is the bare electric wire connection providing 220 volts of electricity to the unit.

The lobby.
