Today was the last day of our one-month course, and to celebrate, we spent the last hour chatting and (of course) snacking. Everyone brought a treat or two, but the hit of the party was easily a still warm, unleavened bread with cheese or a’tar topping. After lots of oohs and ahhh’s, our classmate identified her contribution as a Middle Eastern delicacy know as man’ousheh. It was delicious!
We all enjoyed having a break from learning just to chat with one another, and were even more excited to learn that many of us were taking the next level course with the same teacher. This meant that we would therefore be together again in the coming semester. Moving forward with familiar faces was heartening, so instead of saying goodbye, we could say “see you later!”
