Okay, there’s no other easier way to say this. I got naked in front of strangers and survived to live another day. Pondering in remembrance of said mortification.
Never have there been a day when I so badly wanted to cover myself up than the day I tried out the Korean sauna experience (Jimjilbang).
A jimjilbang is essentially a sauna but the Korean experience offers you hours of entertainment where you can bake yourself in the many varieties of sauna rooms, soak in the hot tubs, massaged or have your back scrapped of all dirt (remember – no pain, no gain). The jimjilbang that I went to also had an arcade, an outdoor pool and restaurant. They certainly pull out all the stops to keep you there longer, after all I was charged in blocks of 4 hours.
So I got naked. Died of embarrassment.
Ignored the young boy staring at me when I’m naked. Made me wonder what’s the age limit for young boys in these rooms.
Showered and got into the tub with other naked ladies.
Got out after some time to rinse off.
RIIIGGGGHHHHHTTTTT…apparently water supply has been cut off due to quality testing.
So…what to do now?
Do as others do and started to scoop water from the hot tubs to rinse myself off.
I felt so fresh and clean. 🙂
