Only in Europe!!!

I am on my way to india and had some layover in Amsterdam , well anytime I have a spare moment of course I am going to journey off and find something interesting.
WELL. I did! Maybe some of you have seen this but not me! Okay. Everyone who knows me also knows that I am not a princess or certainly don't pamper myself ( as if I have time) well anyway I actually have had a pedicure before. I actually really should get them more often because I live barefoot in the summer. I have gotten to the grocery on more than one occasion and suddenly realized I don't have any shoes, then of course that darn no shoes no service thing gets me every time. Anyway here is a quick way for a pedicure .......let the fish do the work. Yes I said fish! How gross!!!
I think I would be screaming the whole time . I can't imagine how that would tickle. Urge!!!! Just the thought of fish eating my flesh...eeuuwew. Anyway. Brace yourselves I am sure this will come to the USA if it already hasn't. I think it's probably been done for 100,s of years. But I think I will stick to a good old fashioned pumice stone how bout you?

EWWWWW no thank you!! I would rather have an old fashioned pedicure than fish nibbling on my feet. LOL

Yes, it probably has been done for quite some time as a Natural Form of Pedi. My Mom is 80 years old and when she was quite young she got gangrene on her ankle and might have lost her entire foot or even died if it had not been for an ancient therapy used for the treatment... which I won't mention because it would surely freak you out completely... but suffice to say that within 3 days she was completely healed with this method, which was painless but something you'd have to wrap your mind around, and she's grateful for the ancient ways that someone still remembered! I know you'll think me crazy, but I'd be okay with this Pedi method... I remember the minnows nibbling at our toes when we were kids swimming in the Lakes of Michigan and it tickled and wasn't creepy at all, we used to say the baby fish were kissing us! *LOL* How lucky to be going to India... I LOVE East Indian Style!

I have done this for years and years, allthough not like this. I grew up near a river, whenever we went swimming the little fish would nibble on you. It tickles!
