Getting a Massage While Traveling in Asia

Outside of our Indian hotel premises, there was a parlor, and I went there for a facial, haircut, pedicure and manicure package, as it was cheaper that way for the same amount or result of work, than getting it in the hotel salon, plus I needed to go out 🙂 The spa treatment took longer than anticipated.

I was watching one of those satellite movies in HD and it featured the 1960’s 3-star movie called The Naked Prey.

The people’s culture then and way of life really resembled the wildlife that they survived with. I was just glad that he guy in the movie was alive in the end.
