I can’t believe I did this. But this redefines frugality. For £5 I got 5 minutes of a more … natural… pedicure. These fish are a particular breed of Carp and they gently nibble off people’s dead skin and don’t touch the new skin. It took all my nerve and I yanked my feet out at first, but eventually became OK with the sensation. Kinda. Sorta.

    Yeah, I had qualms too Raul, and my friend wouldn’t join me for that reason. I did internet research when I got home and it seems that it’s a “virtuous cycle” – these fish specifically happily eat human (dead) skin because of their original natural environment, ie., very hot water in springs, in which little else survives, and humans have been going into those springs for years. So they’ve adapted. Having said that, I’m not fully convinced either, truth be told.
