Who Would Even Notice the Food?

At the Fairuz Arab Restaurant, in Buenos Aires (BsAs).

Again, Arab dancing and food are much bigger phenomena in Latin America than in the USA. Arab Dancing is a subculture adopted by mainstream, non-Arab women.

Irony of Irony. Guadalajara is named after a Spanish city of Guadalajara. The name comes from an Arab word, (Wadi hijara) which means River of Stones.

Apparently, the Spanish and the Mexicans have forgotten that it took their own Christians 781 years to free themselves from the Muslims.

I find it fascinating that they embrace Arab culture so fully.

Arab dance is much bigger in the Latin World than in the USA.
