Bahrain: Hair-raising conversation

Sous, a Swede living in Bahrain, repeats a conversation she had with an Indian woman, who after finding out that Sous was fasting told her she should cover her hair: “Swede: Well, I’m thinking to shave it all off and then that problem is solved! Indian:No!…Aren’t you married? Swede: No. Indian (too caught up in her mission): Well then your husband has the RIGHT to enjoy your hair! You can’t take that right away from him!”

  • Dear Ayesha,

    This is simply hilarious! Or should I say tragic? Thanks for sharing this story of a fellow Swede, on a blog that I would never have discovered myself.

    Yours,

    Vilhelm
