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.
Last night after an amazing day of Frisbee and meeting and eating with their new families, villagers and staff watched a performance depicting a popular story from the anthology, 1001 Nights (commonly known as 1001 Arabian Nights).
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 http://instagram.com/clvalwaha. 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.
