Enter these enchanted woods,
You who dare.
hello khadijateri,i found your blog by accident and found it very interesting. i googled "gharian" and found your link. i also lived in libya for seven and a half years. i was in marsa brega most of the time. and, i am also an american. my children went to libyan schools too. we left libya in '90 and i have not been back since. my husband's family is originally from gharian. i have two grown children now. i read through your descriptions of the tea making and other traditions and i am glad that you have documented all these things from the perspective of an english speaking person. sometimes you find people trying to describe customs which that they have no attachment to and they fail to describe them adaquately. i am wondering what part of the u.s. you are from. i am from texas. thanks for the trip down memory lane. sounds like you live an interesting life. may God bless you always.
I'm originally from Illinois but my famly moved to Florida when I was 12. I came here in 1989. Glad to hear you are enjoying my blog.
