A humble gift

We had an Azzuma, dinner guests, at Hend's house last night where two Emirati families were invited. As is customary for most, and almost mandatory for Arabs, you bring a small gift for the host family. Never come empty handed. Growing up in Lexington, it was almost standard to give and get a box of Ferrero Rocher; this is simply not done in Dubai. Emirati people are truly generous. They want to give their host the best. Pictured below are the humble gifts they brought.

Hend wont let me open the basket, but I'm just waiting for her to fall asleep. Also, here are a few pictures of the table and what she served.

Fresh figs with goat cheese (This was better in theory)
Cucumber Yogurt and Salad
Leg of Lamb!
