Sweet mint tea

And the cap on every iftar is wonderful Algerian tea served from a pot into tiny glasses. I love the tea but the service always makes me feel like a little girl playing tea party!

This photo was taken by the young niece of a coworker who invited me to her home. The little girl played for hours with my camera leaving me with a legacy of the small treasures carefully arranged in an Algerian home readied to receive guests. These homes Victorian and grandmotherly to me -- they have a feel lost in our big, modern palaces.
