It was half-term so there were treats for the kids and the fountains were in full flow and looking good.
They were putting out the chairs for the evening concert
and there was a large tent with some interesting displays, sadly in arabic only, and mostly of a religious nature. I hadn't taken my specs with me so did not get the best out of the philately and coin exhibition. There was a display of photographs from the time of Mohammed V, a display on rural religious schools and an astronomy display of rather better and certainly cleaner telescopes than Beloved's and books showing planetary motion up to 2100BCE. That display seemed to be manned b timekeepers from the mosques and of course the Islamic world has a long history of great astronomers because of the importance of fixing the dates of Eid and Ramadan.
Round the corner by the side of the Palais Salaam were a range of stalls selling local traditional craft products.
There were at least eight Argan co-ops represented so I bought some argan oil for the Quaker who despite having taken home loads wanted more for a friend. There were stalls selling furniture
and the knock-out stall sold embroidered tablecloths and napkins which sadly I could not think of a home for.
