At the falafal stall in the centre of Farafra we bought a delicious bread with falafal as take-away for in the bus.
Ta'amia of falafel is one of the most popular dishes/snacks in Egypt. The Egyptians eat it in the morning, afternoon and the evening.
Ta'amia is a very old vegetarian dish from ancient origin.
The copts see ta'amia as their traditional dish. At special days and during Lent, when eating meat is not allowed for several weeks, the copts will eat every day dishes with falafel.
Ta'amia is made of ''ful nabed'' (dried white garden beans) baked with onions, garlic, persil, cumin and coriander in the form of cookies.
When we stopped for a camp, first the camels got their food.
The landrovers came to bring our luggage and our foodstuff.
I always enjoy the tastefull meals in the desert. The drivers and guides are mostly also very good cooks.
We had vegetable soup, roasted chicken, rice, salad or a nice pasta or a good meal with tomatos and potatos.
