Adhe's brothers' have a clothes shop, Suicide Anthem ( www.suicide-anthem.com) and so wanted me to pose in some of their clothes for their next adversting campaign.. Her twin brothers' run the shop and were very sweet so it was quite fun. They'd planned the scene as the holding up of a supermarket. We spent quite a long time in the supermarket trying many diff poses... Apparently Madi discovered afterwards that he'd had his camera on the wrong setting so none of the photos are perfect, oh well!! Prob the fact that I'm v unphotogenic doesn't help (yes I do realise the camera never lies...) But their whole attaraction with White skin seems to get them past that. It's the complete opp of western culture here. It is beautiful for women especially to be as white as possible, and they have whitening lotion like we have fake tan and most women avoid the sun at all costs. I think it's from the fact that if you work outside you get darker skin so is kind of a status thing, that and the typical grass is always greener...
I started writing this blog to try and keep any interested parties updated on my travels.
I actually haven't been that greta on updating it as often as I should of really. I could say I was too busy seeing the world to spend time writing about it but I think the real excuse was that I have just been a bit lazy at doing it!
I have already arrived home now. I set off on 19th Aug 2007 and returned home on 8th June 2008.
I will just finish off a few more entries for the countries that I have missed now that I'm home and have time too..... full info
