A very enchanting sight...

On one of my adventures, I met an Algerian guy. We got chatting for a long time and he told me that the Morroccon women are notorious for practicing black magic in the Arab world.

If mentioned a few other stereotypes...but its was interesting.

Azra - It is a common belief amongst most Arabs that Morrocans and Omani are well versed in the dark arts but perhaps it is best not to tatoo all women with the same henna!

River- its truly inspirational how creative people of the desert can be when it comes to their adornments. Whose to say that style is only for the catwalks? In this case its for the sand dunes too!

love this pic. it reminds me of the women in the desert of Timbuktu (and the men as well). I was simply enchanted by them - they seem as if they're from another world.
