Rhodes, Greece. October, 2011

Wouldn’t it have been nice to enjoy a scrubbin’ and massage here at the Turkish baths in Old Rhodes? Alas, a sign indicated that the hammam was closed for renovations...and the joint looked as if it had been closed for centuries. Maybe not such a bad thing, as I know how to ask for a scrub and a massage in Turkish, but in Greek, no. So I’ll continue to re-live my memories of indulgent sudsy rubdowns and soakings at three historic Turkish baths in Istanbul and one in Edirne.
