Because of my job I was invited to have dinner at the American Embassy tonight and celebrate black history month final week by eating soul food.
Soul food is what we call the meal African Americans eat regularly, so it's part of their culture.
Soul food originated from slavery, in the past black people used to only eat what their masters leave them, and they usually get the food their masters throw in the trash. So it was always something like pig's ear or leftovers or extras and they used to find ways to make it taste good.
Tonight all our food was prepared by African American women. It was an interesting experience and we had a band playing jazz music while we had dinner so it was kinda nice.
We were not allowed to take pictures, we had to leave our phones, USB sticks and even hard drives at the security desk, so I couldn't take any pics to show you guys
But earlier today I went to jardin d'essai with my future husband (Insha'Allah) and we took loads of pics and videos and am gonna upload them to share with you guys! [Insha'Allah]
P.S. You should know , that our food is so much more delicious than their food!
~~~ Peace out ~~~
