Water (again)

I've been without hot water since last Thursday. The sign on the building promises that it'll be back after a two-week outage. Apparently this is normal. Every building gets cut off for two or three weeks each summer for "prophylaxis." I don't know what kind of prophylactic treatment requires a two week outage, but I hear it involves cigarettes and beer.

I am bathing at the health club or else I'm pouring water over myself from a pan I've heated up in the kitchen. Everything takes longer in Belarus, sometimes even bathing at home.
