Waves: Brassaï, Apollonia

As I already once said, my visit to Israel thought me the value of a beautiful hair. Last weekend I met X, who has an amazing hair. Everybody is asking her all the time if she is Arab or Israeli, and she told me how a Persian guy has been the only person from Middle East who has touched her hair: and she noticed a very particular way of caressing it, not known in Europe or the Americas. Now I got curious about how Middle East people privately relate to hair!
