Sunday 8 December 2019

Find a hammam. It's like a steam bath. Bring a towel, shampoo and soap and something to scrub yourself down. The women are all shapes and sizes and they sit and chat in their knickers, or nothing at all. Some like to go once a month to zap their period pains. You can even pay someone in there to scrub you down. The men have their own section too, where they sweat and chew the fat. A very civilised tradition.
