…it looks like this….

…it looks like this. Behind this door was The Most amazing thing. A real local hammam, not that spa-ish experience of Granada At All.

The wife of the guy who cooks and cleans at the guest house took me in and set it up with the proprietress.

It costs about $2 to use the facility and another $8 to get a lady to give you a scrub and a massage. There is no soaking involved. There are huge buckets of water of varying temperatures, maybe five for each person. You sit on the tile floor of a steamy very wet room surrounded by these buckets, washing and pouring water over yourself.

The place was packed with women totally naked except for underpants all scrubbing and washing and pouring away. If I had done this on the first day I would have done it every day, no doubt about that!
