The burkini makes it to Amasra

We believe this bikini for modest women was invented in Amsterdam a few years ago. They are just starting to make their way into Turkish beaches (pictured here in Amasra).

 

Some French mayor got very upset about this and banned a woman from a local public pool last week for wearing a burkini.

 

I can't help there is a degree of Islamophobia here, especially when I look at how western European women approached the sea a century (or less) ago...
