Bathhouses

I’ve gotten into the whole Bathhouse thing.  First, I went to one with Casey and Helen, and we spent an all-too-quick 5 hours there.  (Helen needed to do research for this article previously, so knew the whole routine.)  The next week, I went to another one with Claire and we spent 6 hours there.  This week, I took Hanna and Henrik and we spent about 7 hours there.  Today, we soaked in the baths, got a body scrub, then an olive oil “body beauty treatment” and cucumber face mask, showered, got a shoulder massage, took a little nap, ate a few dumplings at the restaurant, then got a head massage.  It cost about 350 RMB.

New Star is the one I like best so far.  It’s actually Korean (there’s even dog meat on the menu) and they have some interesting things, like sweat-lodge type things that have special crystals in them.  It’s no-smoking, which is the best, and also headphones in the room where you can lay and watch TV and get a foot massage.  It’s much more relaxing that Xiao Nan Guo.

I feel kind of like a puddle when I get done.  Very loose and relaxed.  Ahhhhh……

Claire and I in the pajamas they give you to wear around.  At New Star, the floors are heated so there is no need to wear slippers!
