These are members of the family that is in charge of the prayer from the Al-Aqsa Mosque (which is kind of a big deal...their family has been doing it for a LONG time!)
Then we dress up
|Mr. Sheik here for SURE won best dressed!|
(look who snuck in...a cute little Arabian Princess!)
Go to a banquet
|I folded those napkins thank you very much!|
and have authentic Arabian cuisine! Ahkmed pulled out all the stops on this one
Then some local youth from the village come and teach us a traditional folk dance...
which then (in true JC style) turned into a full blown American, dance-till-you-drop party!!
These pictures do NOT do it justice! It was hoppin ya'll!!
Yay! We love Arabia!!!
