  1. Good photo! Forgive my tourist term here, but I think when you see belly dancing done well it can be rather erotic to watch also. That’s the main reason to enjoy Shakira videos anyway! πŸ˜„

    1. Thank you , Graham ! πŸ™‚ !
      I saw it in Dubai with my family and at least 60 other tourists – , gentlemen , ladies and kids of all ages , for various countries – at the end of an exciting desert safari. It was a professional performance in an open air camp in the middle of the desert . A real treat for the eyes and ears.

      But , then , abuse of art forms can occur anywhere , in many many ways , can’t it ? πŸ™‚ !

      Thanks again !

      1. Very true, I suppose any art form is open to interpretation and abuse eh? Why we can’t just be allowed to enjoy it as was originally intended, who knows!?! πŸ™‚
