hands with henna

Me and my friend got a hand done each by a little girl in Mt Abu, India. This isn't proper henna, it's a chemical substitute that's dark and stamped on with carved wooden stamps. We tried to get proper mehndi done later while we were in Jaiselmer, but not really thinking, we got it applied right before we were having dinner and catching an overnight train. Needless to say, the mehndi didn't stay on our hands long enough to work :(
