Blue Lagoon

I just went to the Blue Lagoon today in Iceland.  It’s a huge hot pot with steam coming out or in other words, a huge hot bath.  It was my first time going there and so, it was quite an experience!  The picture I’m attaching is me with mud silica on my face.  It’s some kind of thick and mushy natural moisturizer made from the mud of the lagoon.  I sure do look like a ghost, don’t I?  I actually had a lot of fun playing with the mud as if I were playing with play-doh.

I also had a weird experience there.  In the changing room, there were bunch of females walking around naked and half of the shower stalls had no doors and so women were showering with their bodies exposed to the whole world!  I felt strange to be in this space because this scene does not exist in America.  It was so hard to hide my reaction.  I just wanted to pop my eyeballs out and shriek with non-sense words!  We’re very secretive about our bodies in the US  Fortunately, there were a few shower stalls with doors and so, I was able to shower without exposing my body to the world!  LOL.

fyi, in the deaf residential school, the dorms do not have private shower stalls. So, Imagine my shock when I had to take a shower with all the girls in one BIG shower stall that can hold six girls at a time. I wasn’t comfortable with it so, I decided to take a shower very early in the am and usually am there by myself. I don’t know how it is in other residential dorms in USA. My experience happened when I was 14 years old, entering a school for the deaf for the very first time.

    OMG! Are you serious, Candy? I would have done the same thing – take a shower early in the morning – OR wear a bathing suit!
