One week ago, I was invited to the apartment of a Moroccan co-worker for dinner. Following the American custom, I normally eat my dinner between 5-6pm but waited till 8pm to begin this meal. It all started with snacks including nuts, dates, and other fruits. They were tasty but I didn't want to spoil what I knew would be a big dinner so I tried not to eat too many of these. When the meal was served, it began with an appetizer called 'Bastilla' which tasted a bit like dessert. The main course was a dish called 'Cous Cous,' a mixture of some type of wheat extract with beef and assorted vegetables. All in all, it was a very delicious meal and the first time I'd experienced Moroccan food.
The conversation was interesting as well and the event makes me want to visit this country some day.
