    B.N you should have posted a video that captured the night. That would have enlightened us more.

    Meanwhile I spy half nakedness here. There is a curly haired light skinned girl that looks like the top part of her body is bare. Pic Number 17. She is standing next to two other ladies, one of them has her short hair dyed. The picture below it has a dark skinned woman wearing a very low cut top with too much cleavage exposed.
