bathing pool

Cardo is right now watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He's at the part where Harry is visiting the prefects' bathroom. I'm not watching the movie, but I'm familiar with the scene from the book. I have never understood who exactly would be taking a bath in what is basically a pool. Do all of the prefects bathe together? Is this like some ancient bathhouse?

All of this leads me to wonder where exactly everyone else bathes? Is it like the summer I went to camp and there was a row of shower stalls? Something like living in the dorms? I'm guessing it's something like this, but there's like one mention of Ginny and Ron heading off to shower (separately, of course) after a particularly muddy Quidditch practice.

Okay, enough speculation about Harry and his world...for now.

We JUST listened to the Ginny and Ron shower part last night (yes, we're listening to them yet once again). How funny you mentioned it today. I have wondered the same thing though.

We're reading book 6 right now. Zeb often points out funny oddities like this. I don't know that he's considered the shower thing, but I certainly wondered about that tub when I saw it in the movie...and the amount of water waste! haha

I'm hoping there's some kind of magical water filtration something-or-other and all that water isn't really wasted. I really hope that there's a good filtration system considering the toilets flush into the lake.

I don't actually remember that part in either the book or the movie, but bath houses aren't antiquated. They're still very popular in Japan. I've been to many. :)

Sally: I just fruitlessly answered your question on the other post. Sorry, I'm no help.

Furie: Ah! I knew I had heard reference of them and it was probably from you. Thanks. Were they pretty public? Were they co-ed? Should we have them here?
