An Evening in Morocco

Published: August 13, 2014

On Monday villagers traveled to Morocco. At dinner we enjoyed Tajine, a stew served atop a bed of rice originating in North Africa from the Berber people. You can see photos from supper on the Al-Wāḥa Instagram at Tajine was a huge success and everyone enjoyed eating out of the Tajine pot which is ceramic dish with a flat base and a coned lid. The pot is beautifully painted.

Another Day in Paradise!

​At Al-Wāḥa our villagers and counselors experience new adventures everyday. Yesterday our villagers “visited” the gulf countries like Saudia Arabia and Qatar and learned a variety of cultural lessons. Villagers expand their own personal comprehension by leading songs and practicing cultural activities like belly dancing. Villagers also participate in a variety of sporting activities to stay active. Our staff likes to incorporate cultural lessons into our sporting activities.
