Scene On The Streets Of New York

Speaking of the meeting of East and West, I saw the oddest thing whilst waiting for the bus home today. This picture does not do it justice, unfortunately. As we were standing there on a warm Augustinian day, what should walk towards us but a young lady wearing what looked like a hajib…and a bikini top and shorts

The other folks on line and myself stood there in stunned silence for a minute, and then we all laughed. Only in America, indeed.

Luckily there weren’t any Taliban with stones in the area; otherwise they might have had a little “chat” with her about modesty…

    Maybe she just didn’t want to be seen with that dude. Come to think of it, maybe that’s the real reason any woman wears a hajib.

    I think she got up in the morning and said to herself, “Hmm, bad hair day. But my body is smokin’!”

    Maybe she was on her way to robbing a bank.
