A post dinner adventure
After a delicious dinner at Elfin Cafe, where we had charming service from Errol (who loved the ladies) ,
he encouraged us to have a Turkish shave because the ladies do not like to "kiss a brush". So, the boys decided to accept Errols recommendation for a place to get a shave. Unfortunately, the place was closed but we found another on the way back to our hotel. Well, the adventure began!.
Welcome to Adnan's full service shop where we we watched a client (through the window) getting his chest shaved. Brad and I decided to run but the ladies encouraged us to give it a try. So, in we went. Adnan greeted us heartily and before we could say 'Gillette', we found ourselves seated in a chair warily eyeing the razors.
Adnan's best barbers stepped up to the plate and we soon found ourselves lathered up. The brushes and lather were warm and soothing...but, we were still worried about those big razors.
Because I only have a third of the facial hair that Brad has, he had to be shaved twice!
Turned out, the razors were wonderful and our faces were clean shaven perfectly without a nick. We thought we would make a quick escape but no, we were not done. As we opened our eyes and got ready to leave, we noticed that our barbers had lit a couple of "small' torches and were getting mighty close to our ears. We held our collective breathes as they gently tapped the torches against our ears and promptly extinguished the flames that were annihilating our ear hairs.
Still not done, out came the "steamer", to open the pores. Steam turned out to be quite nice but once again.
At this point, Adanan encouraged us to have a full facial for an extra 15TL. Sue and Heather were having such a good time, that they encouraged us to go for it.
After a full facial scrub, the green "mask" was applied.
Once this had dried, they peeled the mask from around our eyes and then proceeded to wash the rest of the mask off.
There we were, one hour later, with skin as smooth as a babies bum and looking 16 years younger......at least that's what Adana said! Another Turkish delightful experience. Check out my mohawk! Wayne
