Wicked Visit To A Student's House

     My visit to a student's house started from a funny converstion.

Student: See you tomorrow Miss!

Me: Sara, tomorrow is Friday,it is the weekend I won't see you! (Weekend in the UAE is Friday and Saturday)

S: Miss, I come to your house!

Me: Hahaha!

S: Then you come to my house!

Me: Hahaha!

S: Miss, please! Every year I ask teacher to come to my house and no teacher ever come.

Me: Ok Sara, ask your mother and I will come to your house one day.

S: She say it ok

Me: Ask her this weekend and tell me on Sunday.

S: Miss, Miss my mother said ok, you come today!

Me: Sarah, I will have to drive on the day I come ( I usually go to school on a school bus) so I will come Thursday.

Everyday from that day on she asked to make sure I was coming.

Last Thursday after school myself, the English and the Math teacher headed to Sara's house.

We entered to this:
Damnnnnnnnn homey! All this for us! Fruit, cookies, coffee,dates and nuts! I was in heaven. The room itself was huge with sectionals located around the room. All I could think of was the kick a** party I could have in the room.

I helped myself as we conversed with her mother, who looked no older than 38, yet had 7 kids (my student was number 4).  Then Sara's mother announces, 'Now time to eat!'

Ummmm, excuse me!? What was all this?! 

 Before I could say anything, this was placed before us:


Rice with lamb, eggplant and potato. A delicious salad, hummus and bread.

Everything tasted so delicious. I thought I was going to explode.

Then when it was time to leave, they gave us loot bags! Gift bags with treats like a scarf, ornament box and a key chain. Unbelievably hospitable.

Teachers under the 'tent' that is sometimes used to have BBQ'd and lounge. Notice my loot bag in hand. 

I am so happy I went!


  1. OMG! OMG! What an amazing spread. So gracious and such hospitality!! This must have been SO important to that young gal. <3 And SWAG BAGS!!! Wow, just love this!
