Fish Massages

I can't write long tonight. I need to get to bed. Five thirty comes too soon!

I've been sick for the past couple of days, and I think that I'm just not used to the food. I haven't had much of an appetite, so I've eaten very little in the past few days. All this lovely Thai food going to waste!

Anyway, fish massages. One of my co-students told me that there was a fish massage place just down the street! I decided to try it on one of my lunch breaks so I trooped over there. The place was just a booth out in the street with all these fish tanks on the ground in front of benches. I removed my shoes, wiped off my feet, and plunged them into the tank.

My feet and the lower part of my calves were immediately surrounded by hundreds of little fish all chewing the dead skin off of me! It was so odd. At first it was really ticklish, but then I got used to it. Then it just felt like a massage chair's vibrator was surrounding my calves and feet. A vibrator with tiny teeth. I also put my hands in for a short time, but that's not easy to do, balancing-wise. After my fifteen minutes were up, I slowly pulled my feet out of the water, shaking off my gold and brown cloud of fish.

My feet were pretty soft.


  1. at first that sounded really odd...but you know, i think i'd rather having fish touch me then people! haha
    way to be open to new experiences, laura! : )


I like comments just as much as fresh guacamole and chips! Well, maybe not quite that much...
