The Seattle Arab Festival is happening this weekend at the Seattle Center.  Sadly, I can’t be there. However, here are some photos from the last time.

    @Zvezdana Thanks for the comment, Zvez. You know, I think the teens had more fun that anyone…

    Holly, we went and had a wonderful time. Smelled (though did not partake) Shisha for the first time since we’ve been back, talked with some amazing volunteers and totally enjoyed the dancing. Bethy and Thomas had a fantastic time at the kids’ table, and I was very pleased that Bethy can still write her name in Arabic. So, so glad you told us about this. Thank you again and again. Put a few photos on FB for you, will send you more if you like. 🙂
