Many cultures and religions disapprove of us western females going bare headed, having bare shoulders, and wearing pants or shorts. Modesty shawls and scarves can quickly be wrapped around you as a skirt, and thrown over your head and shoulders, making you instantly welcome at a site. Respecting the peoples’ cultures will ensure you enjoy the country more and that you will see much more.
