Finnish sauna

Finnish sauna

The Finns* take saunas seriously. First of all, they pronounce the heck out of the A and U, so it rhymes with "cow", not starts "sah" like "Socrates". Next, as many as four people will crank the heat up to Insane, and sit, naked, on the top level of steps, where the heat accumulates. The ceiling may be as hot as ~210F/100C, so beware if you're tall like me. Next, use the ladle to pour water on the superheated ceramic bricks, which instantly vaporizes and pulls more heat from the stones into the air. When your skin inevitably starts to sting from the heat, lightly whip yourself on the back or chest with the bundle of wet (also very warm) birch branches to get rid of the itching.

When you can take no more, exit and either 1) go outside and jump through a ice-hole a frozen-over lake, 2) go outside and stand in the cold, or 3), go into the adjoining room and stand in a ice-cold shower of water.

Repeat 3 or 4 times.

There were no frozen lakes, but over three saunas, I tried the other two cooling-down methods.

* Not excluding others here. Please, no Russian or Swede hate mail!
