Dr. Fish

Last night, Thursday, we went to the Dr. Fish Cafe to have our feet cleaned by little doctor fish. The place was very nice, comfortable, warm and fun.

First, you order a cup of coffee, or some other delectable warm drink from the coffee bar. I had a lovely Sweet Potatoe Latte which was not that sweet, warm and very deliscious!

You also get to have all the bread you can eat from their little 'self bar' which means, you go toast your own bread. They also had soju snacks (like peanuts or pretzels at an American bar that would be served with beer, etc.)

We sat and enjoyed our hot drinks and toast, etc. for a while. It was very relaxing and comfortable.

Then, it was time to go soak our feet. First you wash your feet in nice hot water and then you stick them in the tank.

It is a little intimidating, the 3 girls I was sitting with were shreiking and giggling and having a hard time. The idea never really bothered me, but then, I don't think I have a big fish phobia. I am fine swimming in lakes and the ocean. The fish nibbling you does kind of tickle but after a little while you get used to it.

These are the beauticians that work so hard to make our feet nice and clean and smooth.

We left about 9 pm. 3 hours of food and fun for about 9,200 won (roughly $6.25).
After we wandered the street outside for a little while, then I came home. It was a good, fun, cheap evening!

Hmmmm, fish huh? I don't think I would be freaked/grossed out by the fish, but my feet are so ticklish. Don't know if I could do it. That is pretty cool though!
