Hair, trip and documentaries

Hej hej! :) I found a really old shirt that I decided to wear; it's my brother's from when he was little, haha. I had to cut it a bit so it would look better though. It matched my eyes (well with circle lenses on, my real eye color is light blue with a bit of green). ^^ Oh and I decided not to have my regular side bangs, and my lashes are crazy long!
I was watching Män som hatar kvinnor (The girl with the dragon tattoo... however they got that translation). I haven't seen it before, can you imagine - a Swede that haven't seen it?? It's pretty good, I like how cold the "goth" girl is. Finally a movie where the woman is the cool person! x)

Anyway, we decided to go to northern Italy this summer on a road trip! So we'll drive through Austria and stay there as well! Yay! I've always wanted to go there since my dad has told me lots of stories about how beautiful it is. It'll be interesting to see everything, and I'll make sure to take lots of photos. I'm already excited, haha...

Right now I'm watching a documentary about women in Saudi Arabia... The reporter (who is a woman from Pakistan) can only walk around outdoors if she covers her body and hair + parts of her face with a black vail AND is being escorted by a man. They have some sort of religious police and they wanted to arrest the reporter and camera crew because they were all female. Also, women can't get an ID card there without premission from her husband/father (or sons if she's a widow), she can only enter stores for women only, sit at the "family"-part of restaurants, and is not allowed to drive cars. A woman who had an abusive husband and wanted a divorce, was forced by her father to let her ex-husband have custody of her son. Also 15 young girls died in a fire at school when they weren't allowed to leave the building without their vails on!!! WTF?! Women in Saudi Arabia are completely dependent on men and can't do anything on their own! It's crazy! It's like a different planet :S Thankfully things are slowly getting better there....
