Smile shocking bath wiring

I was on a company trip for a week, had to use this bath:

To the left of the bath sink there is a new clothes washer. It was fed from an extension cord behind the wet towels. It's 230Volts, ungrounded, no GFIC.

To the immediate right of the basin, there is the shower. Hot water is made just above the shower head. Wrapped and taped cord to a GFI cable. Tile floor, with a corner drain. Water is turned off in the entire area every night, so to prevent the water heater from draining and burning out, you need to "trip" the GFI. Also 230volt, ungrounded.

It's nice to be back in the states.

Ahhhhhh...... you were in the Uk.

I hope you wore your double insulated safety shower shoes.

Just a bit south of china. Actually, the other guests there suggested to wear "shower shoes". Unfortunately, they didn't fit me.

This all pales with the working conditions at the dam.
