I attended a South Asian bridal show in New Jersey. I have been doing a number of multi-cultural weddings, and this was one way for me to learn more.
There was a woman who was offering free henna applications, and I was really excited to see how it actually felt. I sat down in the chair, and in literally two minutes there was a beautiful design on my hand.
What had not occurred to me, for even a second, was how long this would remain in place. I was laughing at myself when I asked the question to the henna artist, and I was laughing at myself even more when she told me that it would probably last for about ten days!
It was certainly a conversation-starter during that period, and I enjoyed wearing it and learning at the same time.
