Well, in my recent travel to Australia, I went to Bondi beach, a Sydney's suburb which is located in east side of it. it's well-known for sandy beach and surfing that's going on there.
On a sunny weekend I wanted to go out and where is better than beach? Nowhere! so after having breakfast, well it wasn't that much fast, it was something to give me energy for the long day ahead. I catch the train and bus to reach to Bondi beach. Transit system was good; for sure it's very much better than public transport system in Iran. I mean it's incomparable. I reach there and I see a beautiful scene and a nice breeze which it made me feel to join to people and just enjoy the whole atmosphere. It wasn't topless, don't worry! :)
While I was walking and enjoying the time and praise myself for this good plan, I met two beautiful girls from South Africa. So we started to discover the beach and enjoy there altogether.
We were enjoying the water that all of sudden I saw something in black that passing by! I asked myself, what the heck is this?! and I came out of water to see what was it? Just you can't believe that! I saw a young lady covering herself from head to toe in a black robe! it was loose, not something like diving clothes. Unfortunately I didn't take a camera with myself because I knew taking picture is prohibited in the beach but I found something similar on the net. Like:
My South African friends planed to leave Sydney for Johannesburg that night so we hugged and we wished to meet again in the future.
That night the swim suit was on my mind that how would somebody enjoy swimming with that clothes and how could somebody just put clothes on like that in a beach where it supposed to have different outfit?!
I checked the net to see what can I find. Woohoo, it wasn’t that much hard! They call it Burkini and here's the storey about it. Interesting that the designer of this Islamic swim suit, Zanetti, has never worn a burqa (an Arabic Islamic style).
At the time I thought that there are some businesswomen try to make money by designing these kinda of suits for Muslim women, I found another rare photo:
This one is complete burqa, I mean just burqa! it seems that lady just went into water with all her clothes! it's very strange though. About Iran, ladies don't have the right to swim with other sexes in public places, with a strange cloth or without it!
