A Taste Of The Exotic

Do you also like a taste of the exotic my Friends?  The beauty of Mehndi painted on your skin... the feel and textures of lush, vibrant exotic fabrics... the heady aroma of brightly colored Spices and fragrant incense and oils. The  delicious tastes of stuffed Grape Leaves, Tabbouleh, Falafel, Kheer, Couscous and fresh, hot Naan... make mine Curry or Garlic Naan please! *wink*  Sitting outside in a Bedouin style Tent upon a pile of beautiful plump cushions, which sit atop beautifully worn Persian rugs and watching the dancing lights from dozens of Moroccan style lamps suspended above. Listening to Music that inspired such erotic dances as the Dance of the Seven Veils. It is a delight to the senses and the imagination and I Hope you have enjoyed me taking you there upon the canvas of our imaginations... Dawn... The Bohemian
