A Tunisian Wedding

Last night a local farmer invited us to his eldest daughter's wedding, so we attended the outdoor celebration. Fortunately, the weather was lovely.

Because my maze sketchbook is palm size and easily fits into my fancy purse with a pen, I whip it out (discreetly) and draw while nibbling on pastries and sipping lemonade. Fast pen sketches. I might add color later; it's a mini-coloring book.

The bride and groom sit on a decorated platform in front of all the tables for guests, and then come down from time to time to dance to the music with all the young men and women (a sort of modified belly dancing).
My husband gets the idea:"Ok, when you finish the drawing, we'll go home." 
I had a good time!

The farmer married eldest daughter-do you mean he officiated the ceremony, I hope? Certainly not incest?

Thanks, Amanda. Can't imagine why I didn't catch that!
