day 177: massage what…?

Ok, we all know, South-East Asia is famous for good and cheap massages of any kind. I don´t know if there is really a traditional Myanmar massage in Myanmar. But in tourist places like Inle lake people are promoting it. Typical, traditional, massage.

So I went. And this is what the massage studio looked like. In the back of a restaurant. First you walk through the kitchen (quite clean!), then you see the moped parked next to the massage place, hidden behind a curtain. The massage was ok, I stayed dressed, no oil used (which I don´t like anyway). While the lady was massaging, she spoke on her phone with someone and was chatting with the lady cooking in the kitchen. At least she was having a good time and I did also, more or less.
