Travel: A Younger Me with Braids

This is another photo of a younger me. It was taken in the Central African Republic after the local ladies came to our campsite and braided our hair. I kept my hair like this for a few weeks, and when I finally took the braids out, I looked like the wicked witch of the west. Lots of frizz and hair sticking out in all directions!

Hubby got his beard braided, but that’s an entirely different post…

Have you ever had your hair braided?

    Look at you with braids!

    I wore braids if I worked, but my hair is very fine and they came apart quickly if I didn’t do them tight.

    How old were you in this picture? You look like a teenager. :)

    It was a different look for me. I’d just turned 30 in this picture, so not a teenager :)

    That’s a great picture!
