Fish Ate My Feet

Dear Readers,

Yesterday, I spent a good part of my day with some really awesome friends from school, walking around the mall. It wasn't just hanging out, because these girlfriends of mine are crazy!

Unlike in America, people in Oman don't usually come to the mall until after 5 pm. Because we got there at 2, we spent 2 hours playing Truth or Dare around the vacant mall. I won't tell you much, so no one gets embarrassed, but I will say this; record your friends when they are committing the dare.

You will deeply enjoy it later :)

(We recorded one of us crawling across a row of ten tables in the food court. It was hilarious.)

After the game of Truth or Dare, we walked around the mall some more, and stumbled upon this place called "Dr. Fish".

Dr. Fish is a place where you dip your feet in fish tanks, and have mini piranhas nibble away at your dead skin, and leave your feet perfectly soft. :) The real names of the fish are Garra rufa and Cyprinion macrostomusIt tickled a lot, but was a TON of fun. 

You enter the "spa", wash your feet, then get on a wooden platform with a place to sit, and immerse your feet into the glass tanks. Automatically the fish will swarm to you! You can have the lights dimmed, put on music, and just talk, or sing, and have a good time as you squeal at the little tadpoles tickling your toes.

Obviously I'm really enjoying Oman :)

Here's a clip from the travel Channel: Until I get my own video to work, this will have to do!
