One of my favorite things about Ramadan in Morocco is the custom of sharing food with your neighbors. This week, my neighbor has shown up at my door with delicious food 3 times! It’s amazing that even on nights when I am not invited for ftour (breakfast meal) at someone’s house, people still manage to feed me. Today, I decided to return the favor! I made tortilla española and brought a few pieces to my neighbors downstairs. They were happy to receive it! (Above is a photo of food from my neighbors: a Moroccan soup called harira with a type of pancake called baghrir and homemade sweets).
This “djellaba” is the dress traditionally worn by Moroccan women when they leave the house. My student’s mom made this for me as a gift. Is is very comfortable and flattering!
