6.24.12: Banya Bound

Just like traditional Ukrainian village houses, there’s no running water or indoor plumbing at Echo Luna. Sunday is bath day which means taking the bus to Uman (the “big city” 30 km away) to spend the afternoon at the banya, where ladies young and old enjoy the very hot steam bath (birch branches to hit yourself and/or your friends with optional) followed by the very cold showers. Super cheap, no frills, all the latest gossip, open 3 – 8 pm, good clean fun!
