Ok, so here it is... and it's a big one! You can hear the wind a blowing. I have been told that on a day like this I should just stay inside. I understand, but inside isn't so much better. I feel like I am inhaling a bunch of sand. Ha ha. No problem though... it's all good. Gonna maybe watch a movie, eat some OREO's (that my bro Efrain sent me... yummy yummy in my tummy), and order some pizza! And by the way, the pics are "as is"... I didn't use any special features to get them like this.... it does look BEIGE outside! :)

Okay... so this is kosheri. I love it! Now definitely have to be in the mood for it, but it's yummy. It consists of: macaroni, spaghetti noodles, lentil beans, fried onion, and garbanzo beans. You mix it up and the put this great tasting tomato sauce on it. It's yum!

So here are a few pics of my niece and nephew (and brother Isaac). G had my sister Sandra and her husband Victor wait for these 2 precious children for about 8 yrs. Thought I would share their pics w/ you... as my bro-in-law says, "Aaron is our miracle and Abby is our blessing"!

Although a man and woman are legally married, if you will, after the engagement party... the bride and groom don't move in together yet. There are still prenuptial agreements to be made: agreement on the amount of gold that will be given to the bride, a flat, who will provide what for the flat, and other such things. As well, there are all kinds of weddings. The more humble wedding celebrations take place on the street. And the women are seperate from the men. The wedding I went to was an upper middle class wedding... so I was surprised to see men and women dancing in a cirlce together.

Weddings here in the M.E. are not just a one day thing. There are like 3 parts to it: the engagement party (after which time the groom is able to see his bride unveiled), the signing ceremony, and the wedding day. It's fun b/c you get to party a lot more!
