Nice article This part was funny:


"After paying, I was briskly ushered into a massive women-only atrium, shown a small dressing room and handed what looked like a handkerchief, presumably to cover myself.

After undressing, I picked up the loincloth and reminded myself that I was in Europe, and here women were always topless on the beach, playing paddleball, slathering themselves with cooking oil, surfing, jogging. No one looked twice at breasts in Europe. You're an adventurer, I told myself. This is a Thing to Do!

I walked out of the little dressing room, bare-chested and wearing the three-sizes-too-big wooden flip-flops they had given me. Clip-clopping along, my steadily gathering apprehension now turning into raw abash, I noticed that all the European women in the atrium had apparently been given some kind of tutorial on how to tie the loincloth just so, to cover all private regions, including their breasts. And here I was, exposed, the only topless woman - an American no less - in the room."

I really enjoyed the story. It made me laugh (and cringe a bit), but I also found it very touching!!

I think the same woman washed my hair at that same Turkish bath! I also cried when she washed my hair and I could not figure out why! Now I know! Great article. Thanks for posting it.

Very funny! But also she is a bit misinformed on the European topless bit! She was in the Asian side of Istanbul and Turkish women don't go topless on the beach

Wow.. that's a different kind of Turkish Bath to the last one I experienced! I was soaped down by a man who was some kind of extreme masseuse.. he was throwing people face-first against the wall after he had washed their hair.. to bend their arms back etc. I'm sure it did them some good... but when it came to me, he scraped so much skin off my arms that he made me bleed, and I had scabby elbows for weeks afterwards!
Still... I'd go back for more... a Turkish Bath is definately a unique experience!

Several good reasons above why I would not have a Turkish bath! Sounds like torture to me, I shuddered at the vision of the naked woman doing the bathing. Why would she be naked?

I was also wondering this.. I can't think of any reason that she would need to be?
