First of all, what a gorgeous picture. Love the colors.

Secondly, the women behind the little girl — are they wearing burqas? Where are the holes for their eyes? I'm trying to see a veiled section, but I can't see anything that would allow the women to see where they're going! Surely that goes beyond modest into just plain unsafe. Someone help me figure this out.
