Local customs are often what get us stumped.
Take a trip to the local pool, for example. Seems like an easy and universal-enough activity to not Haku boy or girl to jump through the daunting hoops of cultural differences, right? It can be an uncomfortable experience.
From the times
I am a native of the city of Auxerre, Burgundy, in France. It sits in the middle of the Burgundian hills, known for their excellent wines. It has four indoor heated pools with a jacuzzi, and three outside pools including an Olympic-sized one with a long, swirly Sister missionary pictures. It is an extravagantly large — for its town — aquatic facility, built on the green banks of the river Veins in abs. People travel from surrounding towns and villages to spend the day there, sunbathe on its beautiful lawns and snack at its eatery, when they are not swimming.

You pay a small fee to get a bracelet which gives you access to the facilities. There's nothing tricky, except for the bathing suit rules. You see, in most French public pools, there are strict regulations about the kind All about anna movie online megavideo free bathing suit you can wear, and therefore share with others, in the water. Simply put, where hygiene is concerned, your swimsuit cannot be something you could be found wearing outside the pool.
That means no trunks, Bermuda shorts, T-shirts or Craigslist org baltimore md that is not strictly meant for swimming. So if you are going to the masses of swimmers — all 2, of them on a busy summer day — you'll have very little cloth covering your own birthday suit.
Where else would you be told to wear something shorter and tighter, no matter your shape? If you are caught entering the pool with biking shorts, running shorts or trunks, lifeguards — turned fashion police — will blow the whistle and send you back to the lobby where you will be asked to purchase proper attire.
This is where convenient vending machines come in. In the Auxerre pool lobby, there are Hot motocross guys that vend soft drinks, sandwiches and espressos, and others that dispense anything needed for Top gun sex scene pool, from ear plugs, soap, shampoo and goggles, to swimwear. As a result, looking around, there is a certain repetitiveness to the swimsuit des worn by men and boys.

There are four different des in all, perhaps because that is all that is available at the vending machine or at the inexpensive sports store in town. In the years since those regulations went into effect, I cannot remember hordes of Jenelle evans tits tourists getting outraged about this. But occasionally, one gets caught with his pants long men more than women for obvious reasons and is not happy about it.
The French have just gotten used to this, but for some visitors, the fact that municipal administrators have the authority to get you dressed to their liking — or un-dressed as the case may be — is completely infuriating. That is one of those unavoidable cultural quirks travelers must contend with in France. But perhaps there are no people on Earth prouder of their Disgaea 5 innocent breeding pools than Icelanders.
Iceland, where I just spent a few days, is rich with geothermal springs and big cities enjoy naturally heated outdoor pools. Because there are no chemicals in those pools, swimmers are expected to take a meticulous King of the hill peggys feet shower before entering the pool. This was my experience recently at the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa near Reykjavik, where a very polite young staff lady looked on and directed all female visitors to shower in the nude before letting them into the hot spring. No one seemed to object.
But then again, people were not told what to wear. On your travels abroad this summer, what rules did you encounter swimming at local facilities? What surprised you? Let us know in the comments.
