Ordering tea with milk, only to get MINT tea with milk urgh!! I always keep the tetleys in my bag now xHi Everyone, Hope that you are all well!
I think that it's really important that people know what they are letting themselves in for before marrying....
I've read so many stories where people get shocked at the culture.
My parents are Greek, so I also grew up in a Greek cultural world where so many things back then were forbidden.
I have never been shocked with the things that they did in Tunisia as I could relate to some of them..... Tell a lie, someone told me that they had been asked to eat the skin of their child's circumstition,,,,,,,,YUK I SAID
Another thing that shocked me over 30 years ago was when I was invited to my first wedding and they had what I can only descibe as scaffolding where the bride was sitting, swinging her fan backwards and forwards with a ghostly painted face like she had yellow jaundice...No offence.
The music was fantastic as I love Arabic music , but I couldn't understand why the bride didn't really dance... I now know it's because her dressed weighed a tone .
I have always had respect for my eldest and have always worn a jebba (long traditional dress) when visiting old people.. I don't like smoking in front of them and I try and help them in anyway that I can...
Is there anything that shocked you whilst in Tunisia????? I'd love to hear your stories
What is it that you find weird?
