El Cine

Went to the movies tonight and saw a German film called "Downfall" about the last days of the Third Reich. Quite sad but also interesting. It showed Hitler and his top commanders in their bunker in Berlin as the Russian forces were advancing on the city. The film was in German with Spanish subtitles.

The movie theater was brand new with stadium seating and very comfortable chairs. Plus the theater had the nicest, cleanest bathroom that I've seen since I've been in Nicaragua - that is to say, it had toilets that flushed, faucets that worked, soap in the soap dispensers, toilet paper in each stall, a clean tile floor. Really quite amazing.

On the other hand, the bathroom at the Health Center where I've been working doesn't always have running water, so after using the toilet you have to pour a bucket of water in to make it flush. And of course there's no soap. Not the best way to prevent the spread of disease.
