Henna – The Eastern Art of Hand-Painting

                          My friend, Marilyn, had her hands painted by one of her female students in the dormitory (hostel for you Brits! :-)) It took over an hour!



Another colleague’s hands which were painted by an Omani

This is one the shops where one can get their hands painted. (Women only! :-))
