We did a lot of different hammams in Turkey,
this one is a little too empty, but a good
representation.  Sides for men and women
are separate.  You are given a TINY towel.

Step 1:  hot sauna, Step 2: attendant scrubs
a layer of skin off, Step 3:  attendant covers
you with bubbles.
Followed by sluicing yourself with cold
water, from the metal bowl, then back into
 the sauna, rinse and repeat!  Some hammams
had cold plunge pools.  Our pores must
be clean as a whistle.
