    Sounds interesting to meet the girls at the youth centre! I didn't have a single tea during my latest trip, but I really miss the custom of being invited for tea in the Middle East/north Africa.

    Just sitting in a tent sipping tea in the shade out of the burning sun chatting with some locals sounds the perfect way to pass a few hours! Tim

    The correct word is Ksar not skar.It has been renewed with special budgets because it became part of world's richnesses.

    Great to have had the opportunity to chat to your local women. 200,000 palm trees is quite an oasis! (~_~)
