A Great word the burqini.

I was in Dubai about two years ago and as I was in their great waterpark, I couldn't beleive my eyes when a woman (im presuming) in the full dress with only her eyes showing starting swimming in one of the pools. Unbelievable I thought, what was wrong with this woman, it really was a sight. All the women in their swimsuits enjoying the sun and this poor woman was reduced to this. We may laugh but the burqini is out there.
