I'm giving you the eyebrow and she's frowning...
...and THAT is what Mollie and I think of your "no showers all week" policy. Because Juarez is the type of place where you sweat A LOT whether you're moving or not. Hey! Are you sitting down watching the boys play soccer? Then you're sweating. Eating dinner? Sweating. Breathing? Sweating. That's what happens when it's over 100 degrees every day and the low temp at night is 85. The one great thing about that though is that our room that we stayed in had a swamp cooler and it made sleeping really comfortable. That and my air mattress.
However, they did allow us to shower on Thursday night, as we were attending a community church service and in order not to cause an international incident, it's best that we showered. Though I must say, it's a little disconcerting when the water smells worse than you do. No complaints though, because after not showering for five days, ANY water combined with soap and shampoo adds up to the best day ever.
