    a habit I picked up while I was in Russia was the Russian banya or sauna. I've done the saunas where afterwards I've jumped into ice cold water or in the snow afterwards. Their saunas are HOT. 100C! And above or below depending upon who you are with. And no I'm not lying. Very hot.
    Anyhoo I developed a love for the sauna. I recently bought one from Craigslist that is an IR model. Kind of like sitting in a phone booth that gets to 65C.
    Any other sauna fans here?

    I enjoyed beating people with the birch branches more than the sauna. Lol.

    Then you've never had the proper banya experience. Those damned branches when fanned over you increase the heat to an intolerable level to me.
    Proper sauna is debatable. I've had differing experiences with the birch leaves.

    The kvass is the worst part.

    No, I do not wanna get in a Sauna with you. But thanks for asking. :p


    Just kidding, it's only because I'm posting this from my personal sauna right now...
