We spent Saturday hanging out with Nancy's cousin Chris: we went to lunch and then got dessert (which I will take a picture of and explain next time I have it... it was quite unique!) and we rode some go-Karts and then had dinner.... it was quite the full day.
The first thing they did when we got there was to wash our feet, which I was all about. After that we were lead to a small private room with three beds and each given a pair of pants and a button-down shirt to put on. Chris and his GF were in a different room so Nick and I had to figure out what to do ourselves... for a couple of minutes we deliberated whether or not we were supposed to completely strip down or leave our undergarments on... but we (correctly) decided that we should remove everything.
The lights were low and we were in these weird clothes that we weren't even sure we had put on correctly (do the buttons go in front, or in back!?... answer: in front!) Needless to say... Nick was feeling WAY out of his element!
Once we were changed, the women came in to give us each a massage. We paid NT$1,000 for a two hour massage (that is about $33US, so its a pretty good deal).
The last move of the massage was this one:
(where the masseuse is the one on the bottom)
Nick's masseuse was a small woman and it was pretty amusing to see Nick on top of her like this. I said in Chinese "he is very big!" when she did it! haha. I can't believe he didn't crush her!
I have to say, I really enjoyed my Thai massage and I have a feeling that when we go to Thailand, we will be getting a lot of these!
