When I was sitting in a refugee camp in Switzerland between 1986-1988  
I had to do daily chores.  One of them was to clean the bathrooms  
located on the floor.  One day as I grabbed my devices and started to  
do it, I saw two persons standing in front of one urinals.  One of  
them was bending.  I almost turned and went away, but in the last  
moment I realized that the bending was just washing his hair, and the  
other one was pushing the tap down, so the water flowed continuously.   
They looked apache - black hair and sun-dried skin -, but there were  
no tom-cat around :)

The coffee was made by an austrian cook from neighboring Voralberg :)
