Sauna 2nd thoughts...

I've reconsidered my position on saunas. After a visit to one the other day where I had a great chat with some Indians who work at the World Bank, one of them shared his experience of trying to convince his wife to buy one.

She argued (pragmatically) that:
  1. you have a jacuzzi you never use, prove to me you'll use the sauna first and then we'll talk
  2. it's expensive to buy and maintain
  3. you will miss the social element

Point #3 made the biggest impact on me. I've long said that some of my best random conversations happen with people in saunas.

I'm no longer going to get one of my own. Just go more often!
