LiaF7 @fifileigh with rosewater it isn't used here in our gastronomy. You can find this recipe in slightly different quantities of ingredients and see it more dry or more creamy. I prefer more creamy :)

The original building had the presence of two Roman cisterns and its first walls were built by the Arabs. During the conquer of the castle and taken by the Christians in 1148 (by the first Portuguese king, Afonso Henriques), the walls were destroyed, having been rebuilt immediately in order to p...

Papyrus is a plant (cyperus papyrus) which once grew in abundance on the banks of the Nile River in Eygpt. It grew to about 10 feet high. Papyrus was harvested from the beginning of the Predynastic Period in Egypt (c. 6000-c.3150 BCE) NOTE: (BCE=before current era) The earliest archaeological... Read more

On her 15th birthday a girl is introduced to society as prepared for marriage. They consider she changes from a girl to a woman at this age. I was lucky to attend this part of the ceremony during my visit to Trindad, Cuba. Trindad is a World Heritage of Humanity village that has strong colonia... Read more

Smokey2017 That is so young for marriage
When they are just developing their own identity
2 years

LiaF7 @Smokey2017 it is an old tradition. Even last century many were married from 16 to 20 years old. Over 20 parents would start worring they would only be aunts. Today youngsters don't get married or make that decision nearer to their 30s.
In Cuba this tradition is like a big ceremony for them. Other countries in high society at this age they do the debutante ball where daughters of wealthy people are shown to young men of wealthy families. It's to say: Hey I am available for courtship, lets keep wealth together lol. Doesn't mean they will get married at that age.

LiaF7 Hey @ze2000 maybe some tribes in Africa think the money we spend on a wedding ceremony and cocktails and honeymoon are wrong too.
In Cuba people are poor, on this date family comes from abroad and in most cases pay all expensives. Girls feel like princesses and everyone has plenty of food to party.
Very difficult to stop a tradition that makes them so happy.

LiaF7 Normal birthdays. I think the jewish have a special birthdate for boys too.
But for my knowledge the english speaking communities have a special treatment for the girls "sweet sixteen" Boys don't have a 16th special birthday.

LiaF7 @ze2000 you are right. The whole concept is wrong for today's world. Made sense until 1930 maybe... but like I said girls feel like princesses and they don't have graduation parties so probably the closest they get to feeling like stars on one day is this.

LiaF7 @Smokey2017 don't forget that this is only an exhibition. Like parents saying... hey i have a daughter unmarried, anyone want to court her? She can be married 10 years later. This is only a showoff like ze said.
