Coffee shop, desert style

Coffee shop, desert style

After we finished touring the camel pens, we were taken to a giant nomad tent, outside of which was this coffee shop. (We saw another one just like it in the souk, so it wasn’t set up just for show.) Inside our hosts served us delicious cardamom-scented coffee, sweets and dates. After that, we were treated to an enormous banquet of lamb, pilaf, hummus, köfte, salad, eggplant and more. We ate sitting on the floor and enjoyed every bite!

OK, my local Starbucks has a ways to go. I like this POV with the shapes of the clouds nearly matching the angle of the table. V

Such an interesting coffee shop! Most different from any we see in the US!
The pick-up truck seems to be a bit out of place here, doesn't it? ;) V
