ten things that make a saharawi eid l’kabir

sunny 27 °C

one barbecued sheep’s head


two hours trapped (and weeping) in a smoke cloud


three generations of Moroccan settlers in disputed territory

four (hundred) kilometers between our celebration and the land mine ridden ‘berm’


five giant gulps of ‘zrig’ or strawberry flavored camel’s milk

six fat wrapped liver chunks per skewer


seven desert police checkpoints in possession of our intimate personal information


eight strolls past the most popular square in town, paraded by our giddy male Moroccan undergraduate hosts

nine missed opportunities to support saharawi independence


ten seconds to gulp down scalding coffee at bus stop and get the heck out of laayoune
