Massage in jail

Thereâ€™s nothing to do today. We had to return the bike before noon. It was the last day, should be the most relaxing day so we decided to have a massage. But not the general one as we went before. We went to the prison! The good prisoners will massage you with the proper price. Itâ€™s not dangerous as they are the good prisoners who will get out of the jail in 3-6 months. But itâ€™s full. So the police who is in charge told us that thereâ€™s another one, works by the ex-prisoners if we want. Yes, we want. Five minutes later, the nice car came to pick us up to Lila Thai massage and spa.
Nice place and nice people. Lila thai Massage shop is established according to the Director of Chiangmai Womenâ€™s prison, to support the released inmates to earn a legal living.
So here at Lila Thai, their masseuse received skill on 180 hrs massage training during their imprisonment and received the assessment by Chiangmai public health. I took a Thai massage for one hour, itâ€™s about 180 THB. Ale took the herbal massage for 2.15hrs., itâ€™s 500THB. For me, it was really awesome massage that I ever had! It seems like she knew what I want and where I hurt. Was worth it! Good thing is, not only they make you feel good after have a good massage but you do the same to them also by supporting them to start new lives and earn a legal living!
We had the last dinner at The writerâ€™s club where Ale told me that itâ€™s the Lonely planet writers go to hangout there.
Back home with Thai Airways, not delayed. Even I wasnâ€™t impress this trip much but wasnâ€™t that bad. At least I earned1,000 ROP miles from Thai airways. :D
