    Making friendship with the locals

    Getting to know people and exchange points of view is one of the best thing that a traveler can do during his journeys. And people in Algeria are so nice that often you are invited to their homes to drink tea or even to have lunch or to sleep. People in Oran are not an exception. These men in the picture helped me to find Spanish rests in Oran, climbing walls and roofs until I found the Puerta de España since the times when Oran was a Spanish possession.

    Afternoon tea and Sweets.

    I have seen others comment on the mint tea, try this with the homemade sweets, what a great way to end the day. Late dinners are the norm, but the food is all great. Light dinners are better since you eat a large lunch and have tea around 5.

    Eat cous cous

    by maryamy Written Jul 22, 2003

    It takes a little time to prepare, but it's lovely. The Algerian cous cous is not spicy, but more fruity than that of her neighbouring countries.
    The scarf is only to keep one's hair out of the food.
