Beautiful colors! This is the 1st time I have seen women on you blog. I was beginning to wonder if any lived there.

My first impression is WOW! All the color! I had no idea a camel festival could be so colorful and fun. Thanks for the posts! (Is there something wrong with your site? I've left a few comments but none are posted)

My second impression is, really? Elastic banded masks? I never understood the masks, I mean, aren't a woman's eyes seductive and the window to her soul? The full burkas make more sense to me than these masks. They're just plain ol' silly, even when you objectively consider the rationale behind wanting to cover your wife. I mean, I can understand why a man wouldn't want his wife's business out in the open for all to see. Long skirts and sleeves, cover the hair, okay, I wouldn't like it personally, but I can respect it. But these masks? What's so sexy about a forehead and nose that requires concealment? I don't get it.
