Friday in Algeria

On Friday afternoons, after congregational prayers at the mosque, residents of Algiers usually head to a fir tree forest called Bouchaoui.

At Bouchaoui, you can ride your bike, take a jog, play soccer, or just sit back and relax.
For a small fee, you can ride horses,…

sip traditional Saharan mint tea, and…

listen to young people drum in the center of the park.


It’s really a joy to see families in the park together.  Some end their day with a little fast food;…

like this plate of French fries from a local pizzeria.


And, of course, no day would be complete without a packed bus ride home.  😉
