If, like me, you live in the plains, then you would have seen young girls travelling in bikes, in autos, or walking, with their heads completely covered up with scarves. I always wondered how they did it, because I've tried it and always had to readjust the scarf every two seconds because it keeps slipping off my head. A couple of weeks ago a girl friend showed me how to tie it properly and it was very easy, and very simple. Allow me to demonstrate:
Step 1: Take a longish scarf, and place it on your head.
Step 2: Pull it tight over the forehead, and tuck it in behind the ears.
Step 3: Take one end of the scarf, and fold it back so that it covers your face from below the eyes.
Step 4: Tie both ends together at the back of your head.
Now this is how you will look.
Step 5: The other end of the scarf can be used to cover your shoulders, or can be wrapped around the neck.
And voila!! Now you can travel in bikes and autos without having your hair blown in ten different directions. But most importantly it protects you from the sun. You can thank me after you've tried it. Oh, and the anonymity it gives you is surprisingly exhilarating (if that's the word I want).
