Ramadhan Table

Hi! Still here. For 4 more days anyway.

In the last months my biggest accomplishments have been building a magazine with my Access students and helping start-up an American Corner in Sfax with my partner Faouzi Hakim.

Yesterday was the beginning of Ramadhan, which is always an interesting time to be in Tunisia. We fasted from food and water until sunset and then shared a big family dinner together. Amel prepared chish (octopus soup), two types of brik (a thin pastry dough filled with different ingredients and fried), grilled vegetable salad (called slata mechouia), a pasta dish and some special sweets.

After such a long ride it feels unreal that I’ll be leaving next week. Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!

    Boy that was a long ride…does seem like a long time ago that we had our big adventure to Denver, spent that evening in the hotel and tried to weigh that heavy suitcase 🙂 You have had a lot of life changes packed into two years! So looking forward to you coming home and bringing Mr. Mansour with you..Love, Mom

    Brittany, Yum. Great photo! Now, when I come to see you in Monterey, I would love to have one of those items! (After you both settle in, of course!) Have a great journey.
    Love, Aunt Priscilla

  3. Brittany you made our work look so easy. The magazine was great, and you certainly did a great job at the Franklin Center. I’m thankful for having such a good partner and a great friend. Happy Ramadan for you and Mansour and may ALLAH be with you guys.
