Fishy feet - Ed's journal
Fishy feet
So, as I was bimbling around town today, I saw a stand, that was doing a 'fish spa'. This notion intrigued me. The idea is that this species of fish is rather partial to ... well, lets just say the bits of your feet that you'd normally scrub off with a pumice stone, or similar.

So I decided to stop for a brief rest, and to ... indulge my curiosity.
So, I sat with my feet dangling in a fish tank (detachable trouser legs were really useful) and had my feet ... nibbled by little tiny fish.

It was incredibly ticklish, but a 15 minute session has done (seemingly) quite a lot of good in getting my feet smoothed off and softened.
And got to stop and have a chat with all sorts of random people wandering past, asking if that hurt, how it felt, etc. etc.

Quite a pleasant experience, all things considered. Not least because having your feet washed and cleaned after walking around for an afternoon is fairly pleasant anyway, and being a fishy-snack was also something that appealed to my sense of novelty.
There were, however, no gold fish shoals to be seen. Even if it was cold outside, and there was no kind of atmosphere.

No fresh mango juice, either.

Where was it happening, and how much did it cost?

West Orchards, and the princely sum of £5 for 5 minutes, or £10 for 15.

That's so cool! Did it hurt at all?

Not in the slightest.
It was, however, really quite tickly.

Wow, I'd love to do that! I wonder if the stall will be staying there?
How did your feet feel afterwards? x
