getting a colour

We are still in Slanic Prahova, and oh, well, getting black is one of the favourite activities. And I don't mean here getting a tan, but actually getting... black! Click on the image to enlarge it and you will see... More tomorrow!
They use the mud as cure against all sorts of things, from rheumatic issues, to skin problems, etc.
Happy Wednesday!

  4. Interesting! I'm afraid if I couldn't see everything in the water I would be afraid of some slimy creature attaching to me. I'll bet the mud feels good, though.

  5. Now that's more like it! I got black in Turkey and felt amazing afterwards! (though there is a hideous photo of me which hopefully won't be making its way onto the internet any time soon).

  8. Louise, the water is so salty that nothing can live there :). So it's safe! Although I must confess sometimes I have the same fears :))!
