Daily shower in a private bathroom is a luxury, not something to be taken for granted in many areas of the world. I am an American and now studying in a Chinese college. I found that not all of my classmates have a daily shower. Some of them even take a shower per week. I would expect to at least notice a faint odor from the students, but I don’t. Maybe Westerners just stink more than Asians.
