Carb overload

Last night I had dinner with E., the other intern currently here (C. will be joining us in September!). It was iftar, the traditional meal breaking the fast at the end of each day of Ramadan. The food was delicious, but one thing that was different was the number of bread-based food items served to us in this enormous meal! Here's a picture of courses 3 and 4:

I didn't get a picture of the soup or the traditional fast-breaking dishes (dates, an egg, and a sesame pastry), but as you can see, they're going to have to roll me off the plane next March!
