27th night of Ramadan


Last night was the 27th night of Ramadan. It’s a huge occasion when children–or, ahem, twenty-five year old bents, dress up, makeup and all, and have their picture taken on something resembling a throne. A bent, by the way, is a girl or an unmarried woman.

    Lovely! Is that those pictures from Rabat or Casablanca?

    An important detail I left out in my post: the kids not only dress up, they dress up as brides and grooms. This is one of several wedding dresses a bride might wear. There are a few costume changes during the course of a wedding.
