DELMARVA REVIEW: “Bodrum Hamam” republished July 10, 2019

Read it here: Chestertown Spy      Talbot Spy

AUTHOR’S NOTE: “During a recent trip to Turkey, I visited a traditional hamam. I wasn’t sure what to expect. The tenderness and intimacy of the visit surprised me and reminded me of having my face washed by my parents, something I had not thought of in decades. It also brought back memories of seeing their arms crossed after their deaths.”
