(asked by Sue from New England)
Why is this? When I asked my fiancé if anyone was worried about water damage and he just smiled sweetly and gave me the Gallic Shrug.
Can you shed some light on this? Of course he said that he will not object to our having a shower curtain, he just wants me to be happy. But now I am curious!
Thanks in advance and thank you again for your entertaining and informative blog.
Seriously Sue, I have no idea…
Every shower I’m more or less familiar with in France has shower curtains or shower doors or shower something on them.
So, I really can’t answer your question.
Maybe that’s a Brittany custom, after all I’ve never been to Brittany (well, I’ve been when I was 5, so that doesn’t really count), and I know they have pretty unique habits there.
I mean, sometimes you won’t have curtains with a bathtub, especially if there’s a separate shower in the room. Now that you mention it, there wasn’t any curtain to the bathtub/shower of one of my girlfriend’s parents house in college, which always perplexed me.
No really, I can’t answer that question.
If anybody has an answer or an explanation, they’re welcome to intervene.
