Hajj After-Party (now with food picture)

So, all Friday afternoon, and again yesterday, there was loud music coming from the apartment above mine. My housemate Kristen and I presumed that it was a wedding, but didn't investigate. Yesterday, I was at home by myself and the music was, again, on. So I went upstairs and was invited in.

They were having a dance party! The reason for this party was that the upper-middle-aged couple that lives up there had recently returned from the hajj. I had plenty of fun, and the women there made me dance around (I wore the djellaba that I recently bought), and there were delicious sweets (cookies, marzipan-stuffed dates), and tea.
