This is regards to my friends question. Lets start here, I think I am the only blond here in Sidi Bel Abbes. Many girls have highlights but no is as bleach blond as I. Second, I just wear my American clothes. Almost all women wear a over dress[jeleba] and more than half cover their hair[hejab]. Even beyond that many cover their faces so only their eyes show [ajare] and a few covereverything even their hands. So yes, I stick out and get many a stares.
The food is ok, we have pastry and green tea for breakfast, salad, olives, fanta soda and lots of french bread. Then about 3 or 4 o clock we have more tea or coffee[mud] and cookies and pasteries[yummy].Dinner is served around 8-9 and we have haraia soup, salad, olives, cous cous, fish, goat, lamb chicken. then more tea and cookies. I think i had a food hang over the other day. When their is a dinner party, the men and women eat in separate rooms.
We went out for dinner twice for fish. The platter of shrimp and red fish were served fresh from the sea, that included heads, tails, eyes, bones... I did not eat much of that, the fish was starring at me.
By the way, all the food, fish, meat, pastries at teh market and restaurants are covered in flies and bees.
pizza is made with cheddar cheese????
