Paulette asked if one of the women in the palace who henna the hands of palace folk could come over to our hotel to paint henna for our group. That evening I took advantage of the opportunity to have a temporary souvenir of our trip
The woman decorating us with henna was very quick and skillful. Everybody who was painted had a unique design. She would look at the hand and wait just a second to plan it out before she began painting. Once she started painting, she worked quickly and confidently.
