Mehendi

Here is the henna process and results! I think the henna is like an accessory. It's done at wedding times here. Getting it done means you are getting married or you are attending a wedding of a close family member. Me, my niece, and the bride were the only ones who got it done. I was surprised that the people who came to do it were two young guys.

You do need to be an artist, for sure! The bride got it up to her elbows and on her feet. It was a really grueling process for her. It took over 2 hours for hers to be applied followed by 2 hours of not touching anything. you can see how the design darkened over 2 days.

Mibe took about 35mins to apply. Mine was only $2 while the bride's was $50. I'm awake and still laying in bed here while Kavi sleeps. I think I have a cold now. :( I don't feel totally well.
