Today we headed out to the Lebanese Festival
To learn a bit more about Lebanese food, music and culture. (Which we found out that Rafa, in particular, is very found of. He wasn’t allowed in this picture because he wanted to snack on the display nuts and dried fruit)
The Festival was recommended to us by one of Rafa’s friend’s family – we found Talal’s grandpa all dressed up in traditional dress!
We learnt how to write our names in Arabic
And make a Lebanese flag picture frame.
It was a super hot day so we were happy to find the fresh fruit smoothie stand
And find some shade around the back fence to enjoy lunch – this time Rafa did sit still, because he ate every crumb of lunch watching skateboarders performing tricks off the car park wall
After lunch he gave us a special demonstration hybrid of skateboard tricks and traditional Lebanese dance. We think he might be onto something!
