The Contrast

One of my favorite photos taken lately.
I was walking around Jumeirah public beach when I notices this interesting contrast.
I call it “Contrast” because it’s shows mix of cultures. In the world we live, on one side, example most of Europe Union countries woman is not allowed to walk around with “HIJAB” (to be covered). In some of the countries they fine woman if she goes to public places with HIJAB. And on the other side, in most of Middle East countries you can’t imagine to see woman in bikini. It’s just not possible. But here, in Dubai, that all looks cool together. It’s fine to do whatever you want to do as long as you are not disturbing someone. As you can see on this photo, two woman on the public beach, one in traditional local dress and the other one in bikini, looking and taking photos of camel.

    1. Dear @genuinegemswriting,
      Thank you for your comment.
      In many EU countries hijab is not allowed, or is allowed but woman wearing hijab would not feel comfortable going out to the street. If you read lately news from France you will see that hijab has been beaned and later after long discussions the “face covering” it has been banned and still is the same.
      In Turkey which is lets say mostly Muslim country, 90% of schools banned the hijab it self.
      Same in Quebec for example. If you type in Google “Hijab banned…” it will list you a big drop down may of the countries where the hijab is a “problem”
