I had a Moroccan Bath. They're very commonplace here. I wear bikini bottoms and Meena slathers my body in a brown herbal gel. I am steamed and massaged for ten minutes, then my skin is scrubbed with a loofah mit. Hey presto, lovely smooth skin.
Except I forgot to take my bikini bottoms home with me - I left them lying on the floor of the steam room...
Went back to fetch them later - Meena says she has washed them and they're drying on the line.
"Aren't we like sisters?" said Meena.
"Better than sisters," I tell her for I can't say any of my sisters has ever scrubbed at the skin on my bottom with a loofah mit, or washed my underwear afterwards.

  1. !!! Loved this. (My sister hasn't scrubbed my bottom either but she has watched me give birth twice, yelling her head off at me to PUSH FOR GOD'S SAKE, PUSH!)
