Eid Mburak Said, ntuma!

17 November, 2010

Happy Eid l-Kbir, y’all.

Unfortunately, I have been sick all week and have missed out on the festivities.

That means no going to Rich to visit my friend’s family, no politely refusing various sheep parts that are feasted on for the next few days, and no album full of very graphic photos.

I planned to take pictures of before, during and after, and I am honestly really disappointed to have missed out on this.

I’m going to take another dosing of tabcin noche and pass out.  I’ll revisit the Feast of the Sacrifice in another posting, and if you are dying for more now, you can always google it.

Or, if you are just looking for something to do and enjoy the idea of foods/eating around the world, take this quiz.  If you’d like to keep me entertained for a few seconds too, kindly leave your score in the comments.  I got an 8 out of 11.

    Geesh, I received 5 out of 11. I’m not ready to travel yet unless I wish to visit Iran.

    7 out of 11. I may not be ready to travel, but the only way to remedy my ignorance is with more travel! Bring it on!

    Interestingly, my lack of knowledge seems to be regional… I bet a quiz that really encompassed food traditions from all over the world would reveal a lot about my educational and cultural background (i.e. I got the Japanese, German, and Inuit customs right away. :P)
