Thanks mb my friend for sending me the article below about Libya in the press :
A changing city .....Excerpt
"However, if you happen to have taken the phone number of that stranger you met[ref]
in the morning, and if he happened to invite you to the beach, you might find
yourself swilling bootleg schnaps cooked on a stove-top pot as the stars twinkle
overhead. Of course, you would also wake the next morning with a poisoned
headache, sand fleas biting your face and outside your hut the surreal scene of
teenage girls in black hijabs splashing in the surf atop inflated Donald Duck
The author also liked the shopping available in Libya but then I'm surprised when he says :
"The Euro-clothing stores, with their soccer jerseys and Armani shoes, areWhaaaaaaaaaat , First September street , Gargaresh Road, Jaraba street , Mizran etc... all have men's clothes only nooooooooooo way , because the clothing stores are also aimed at women. I mean if many ladies wear hijab , what do they wear under it ? a bikini, La Perla underwear ? or maybe some fashionable clothes ?
nearly all aimed at men; most women wear the traditional hijab and shop for
fabrics in the medina, or old city"
Sometimes I'm amazed at the naivetee of jounalists.
What is this window displaying here ( hattip Khadijateri ) ? men's clothes ? Don't tell me men in Europe or America wear this type of clothes .... hmmm !
