Here, Scott is holding halwa. My friend told me that you make it from 1 kilo of flour, 1 kilo of sugar, and 1 kilo of oil. She said it is hard work to make because you have to stir and stir. It is really yummy with bread. We were thankful to our neighbor who brought it over.
The boys joined us for this picture. They are more dressed for the summer heat.
Here are 2 of my friend's sons and her lovely tablecloth.
She had made lots of treats for the occasion.
In the evening, the kids and I went and visited another neighbor who had invited us to dinner. They have 4 girls and the oldest speaks English very well. They are happy to have friends to help practice English with.
