Mensagem: 

The medicine cabinet should be a really common feature in Brazil, but as PPAULO mentioned most are plastic made. (can I say plastic made or made of plastic?)

 

Now for bathrooms in Brazil it certainly is a dillema; most are just too small and others are too big, which is certainly uncommon, and then they have maybe a "ralo" (drain) in the center of the bath instead of right underneath the shower head.

 

As for the slippery floors most people in Brazil shower wearing "Havaianas" - flip-flops.

 

As for myself I don't mind the floor and the drain BUT WHAT I DO MIND is getting an electric shock everytime I shower because the tap in the pumbling system gets connected with the electric shower head.

 

What a bummer!

 

Now the rubber flip-flop really comes in hand because one can manage to shut the water off with the flip-flop in the hand to avoid the electric shock ; )
