Started the day in cleanliness mode with a haircut. It was getting too long especially in current temperatures which are approaching 30 everyday. During a one-to-one session with Heri yesterday I asked how does a man get his hair cut in this city of coiffeurs; where, how and how much does it cost. 3 minutes later Heri had booked me a visit from his barber at my hotel for 9.30 this morning. Job done.
Renon arrived on the dot at 10.00 on his scooter. Up to my room and a very professional hair cut including: shaving with a bare hand-held Gillette blade, spray with water and scented something to lubricate the 10 minute head massage, eyebrow trim - a major job normally requiring wire cutters for me, ear trim and, thankfully no conversation at all. Heri had told me the cost because he had to travel was 4,000Ar (£1.35) so, being a very generous chap I gave 5,000Ar or £1.70. Excellent value.
I can recommend Renon to anyone planning to visit Tana. If you want a closer examination please feel free to Skype between 4.30 - 7 pm (your time) any evening.
