Yesterday was a long weekend here in Australia when we celebrate the Queen’s birthday. A couple of mates and I headed off to a place called Babylon. There used to be a korean bathouse in Sydney but that closed for renovations, partially reopened 18 months later and is now closed again. Something like that is fantastic for soaking nude in these winter months so it was a bit upsetting to hear they’d closed.

Thankfully I heard about Babylon from a reader. It’s in Haymarket, right next to chinatown and it seems like it’s still largely an undiscovered secret. The clientele yesterday were us three guys, several older asian guys and a few muscled mediterranian guys but still very quiet. It’s so nice to just sit quietly, chatting a bit with mates and soaking in the warm baths.
