Hi Camille! You have hit on two very cool topics: fashion in India and the film industry, often called Bollywood. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Your questions are great. Henna tattoos, especially in that picture you have with all the hands, are so intricate! I would love to learn more about them. Also, that nose ring looks really heavy. I wonder how many Indian women get their nose pierced, and why? You've got a wonderful start. I look forward to seeing more!



i really like your page camille
