Yesterday we visited an Aruveydic place near Ella which was very hip to tourists ability to pay, while being less concerned with their squeamishness about old oily towels and being massaged in the nude in front of groups of people. After the very oily, very hard massage which took place on a wooden bench I was put into a 'Herbal Steam Bath' which was like a kind of steamy coffin, with a hole for my head to stick out, guillotine style. It was at this point that a woman I hadn't seen before sat down and held my skull very firmly while saying, 'You are very rich madam, and I am a poor farming girl. Please give me some money.' This place was indeed a tourist trap, and I had been basted, and was now being roasted. When I muttered that I had paid alot already she smiled at me and said I was very beautiful and should she turn the heat up?
