Thankful for a cream bath

Nina Bhattacharya | Krian, East Java

“A cream bath is a traditional Indonesian hair treatment during which the hair is deep-conditioned with cream made from avocado and other fruits. The best part, however, is the accompanying scalp and neck massage. Spa services in Indonesia are relatively inexpensive, so I have been indulging in what would be a rare luxury for a recent college graduate in the United States. Cream baths are also a perfect way to escape the oppressive East Java heat — and bond with an ibu (female teacher) from school.”
