Now this story is not nearly as exciting as my German bathhouse story when I sat in a 120 degree sauna that you can only hang out in for 5 minutes, and where all of the women sit naked in a miniature Greek theater. And, how the one lone man in the bathhouse (called the Bath Master) comes in wearing a towel (i.e. not naked) and basically fans the extra hot air from the coals, using a towel, onto the audience of nude women and when he finishes we all applaud him. Yeah, that didn't happen in
This was more of a Japanese style bathhouse that has a women’s section and a men’s section, whereas my nako lady experience in Germany was a women’s only day, minus the non-naked Bath Master. But, I tried to wear a swim suit and there wasn’t a proctor or anything but there were a lot of women my mom’s age getting there bathhouse on and they told me [smiling], “No suit.” So this is where I segue into telling you that I brought my Nook into the bathhouse so that I could read. I am sure no one is going to ask me for a demo of that device again, but I needed to keep myself entertained since I don’t speak Chinese. However, the mommies stared at me and not because I looked ridiculous reading my nook naked, but because I brought an electronic device into the hot spring. It was almost like I decided to read my Nook in an Amazon.com lunch room. I think they thought it was going to hurt them, but I had my water proof cover on it and I get restless. So just a traveling tip for those of you who thought you might want to use your electronic reader in a foreign bathhouse while naked, don’t do it.
