Culture Splash

By lifesnapper  
Hi all.
Well, here is something I just couldn't take my eyes off. V1 is actually a Woman in a Muslim swim suit. If you're a Married Woman in Turkey, then this is how you should present yourself on the beach and in the sea. It's great to see other cultures, and how they live, and I have to say, I was amazed to see this, and thought you might like to see it too. The other pic's are of those who didn't quite take the plunge. Still interesting to watch though.
Well, all the best to all, and I have to say, in THIS country, I wouldn't brave the sea, no matter WHAT I was dressed in.
Thanks for looking,

John Smile

Interesting indeed. I lived and worked in another Muslim country some years back - we were surrounded by fantastic beaches that the locals never used!
Nice shot showing others' cultures.
