The Hamam and the Pain

As well as the cold, Thursday was also notable for a visit with my boss, Ahmet, and his friend, Mehmet, to the hamam (Turkish bath). This was my 3rd visit to a hamam in Mersin, all different ones. The last visit was at the very start of this blog.

The most notable event this time was the massage.

The Massage!

The masseuse caused me extreme pain in my leg muscles, arm muscles, side muscles, everywhere. On many occasions I was almost screaming. I loved it! My muscles were tense and needed the workout. I haven’t felt this much pain for a long time, if ever. No pain, no gain!
