Imagine if you will, a journey through time and space that begins with an intensive abrasion of your skin. While still smarting, you’re jet-sprayed, dunked, and held under water until you’ve shed whatever residue remained from the abrasion. “Whew! Glad th at’s over with,” you think as you lie down and rest for the night.
But early the following morning before you know what’s happening, you’re in the hottest Turkish bath you’ve never dreamed of. Ouch! With great relief you’re allowed to cool off while b eing transported somewhere by conveyor belt. Suddenly, without warning, you’re sucked into a hose and flying at warp speed until…splash! You’ve been shot into a tank of yeasty smelling liquid.
Such is the sakamai‘s tale.
