I've been talking about my bathroom remont for a while so I thought I'd give you all some visuals! (This despite my jet-lagged and culture-shocked comment to the contrary.)

Don't worry, this is after the reconstruction began. I don't have a picture of the very very beginning. But here it is with some weird drywall preparative agent that looks like caviar.

One night I came home and was quite excited because I saw all of these tubs in the hallway. Progress! In my memory, that day has been deemed "the charge of the light brigade." Lord Tennyson must be proud. Or jealous. Or opening up an intellectual plagiarism suit against me.

Look look look! The return of art deco! And the ridiculously expensive shower curtain & rod (from Canada™)!

That's much better than the before picture!! Is there a toilet in there? That bathroom seems smaller than ours...and I didn't think that was possible!

BTW, nice curtain and rod!

There's a water closet right next to the bathroom. I think it's a general European think to have the shower and the toilet separated, although it is still bizarre to me...
