Are you watching it yet??? Last night, Jess, CaCee and Ken traveled to Mumbai, India. They were surrounded by the beautiful colors and intricate detail that this country has to offer. They learned to dance "Bollywood" style and they were given henna tattoos and bindis for a Bollywood party they'd later attend.
But, those weren't the only lessons in Indian beauty. The trio attended a "Laughing Yoga" class where the spent the majority of the time laughing at themselves and those around them. I couldn't help but laugh at them laughing at the people. They believe laughter is great for your soul; so, what a great way to exercise your inner beauty.
After the "Laughing Yoga" class, the trio headed to a spa for some unexpected beauty regimens. They were trying Ayurveda medicine, an ancient form of alternative medicine which has been practised in India for more than 5,000 years. They poured salt water up their noses, put oil all over their hair and drink a digestive cleansing drink - which made them burp excessively.
After the fun, Jessica, who is the Operation Smile spokesperson, met with a young girl who was born with a severe cleft condition. The trio speak with the child and watch as her doctors perform the surgery. Thanks to this organization, the little girl can now have a "normal" smile. Such a great cause!
Jess and gang were amazed with the inner beauty focus of India, as was I. I loved the colors and laughter that filled the air. Again, I love the message that is being told throughout this journey: Beauty comes from within.
Here's a pic of Jess returning to the states. Did you know that a Henna tattoo can last up to 3 weeks?
