I am an Australian-born writer of Anglo-Celtic descent, living in Sinai, in Egypt. With pale skin, blue eyes and dark blonde hair, I don’t fit the generalisation many people hold of “what a Muslim looks like”.
The first two photos were taken in Siwa Oasis, the third at the Red Sea. The last photo is for contrast – it was taken in 1970s Australia.
You can read more of my modest dressing experience on my blog.
