    ... others giving their feet a welcome break. The water is really hot and it takes me a couple of tries before I can immerse my feet into the hot water. The water has strong anti-bacterial powers with superior therapeutic and spiritual qualities. Emile's left foot was giving him problems and almost immediately after the footbath his neuropathy pains were gone :-) we enjoy a coffee on an outdoor patio and walk around town.
