Blind massage

Sounds weird at first right? But there is a famous blind massage school in xishuangbanna where I got an hour long body massage and an hour long foot massage for $13 total.

The masseur really was blind, but I think he's just legally blind. He doesn't use a cane to walk around but when I told him to look at my phrasebook he said he couldn't see.

He had really really strong hands and several times I almost yelped out in pain. I enjoyed it though. It was nice.

They soaked my feet in Chinese herbal medicine before he started the massage. It reminded me of the medicine I sometimes drank at home after going to an oriental medicine doctor.

I hope you didn't drink it after you soaked your feet!

I have had that before too...those people are very strong and it was painful. However, I was walking on air afterwards.
