We got there around 1:15-1:30 thinking that would be the perfect time…and we waited and waited! We had no way to get in touch with each other because we didn’t have international cell #, so I literally kept asking the women around me when jumuah was going to start (most of them only spoke a few words of English, if any, so it was really confusing). At one point I thought maybe they had already prayed, but then more and more women kept coming in after a while so I figured they must be coming for a reason haha! So confusing…anywho, it was a funny experience!

Comment on Aunties in Denial by Nancy http://www.biscuitsandbanarsi.com/2014/02/04/aunties-in-denial/#comment-491 Wed, 19 Mar 2014 02:36:05 +0000 http://107.170.109.15/?p=1878#comment-491 I think the reason people may use the word “Khala” with their kids is because of the way the word “sister” is used in our communities- when addressing a random lady whom we don’t know very well, hence becoming a “Khala” to their kids- kind of giving it an Islamic touch than just aunty.

I agree with Mariam, I hate being called aunty, although I’m well worthy of it. When kids can me aunty, I just ask them to call me by my name.

Thanks for your feedback! Unfortunately we were not able to go inside the Palacio Real (Royal Palace), which I would have loved to see from the inside as it is one of the 3 major palaces in Spain. We got there 30 minutes before closing, so we just hung around outside to take pictures haha!

If you are interested in learning more, please check out Rick Steves’ guidebooks. I never leave home without his book and it provides a lot of great tips!

The experience wouldn’t be complete without trying the locals food. Those churros look indeed like “deep-fried goodness”.
