Hmm, Hamami

A travel blog entry by maccanat29


We have been very quiet over the past few days. Last Thursday we went to a Turkish Hamami for a good scrubbing and massage.

The colour, the noise, the variety of trinkets,leather, glass, china and scarves was as fascinating as it gets. The floor is all uneven worn marble which is washed carefully every morning.
