A perfect tea party.
This was a tender little exchange I just happened to catch. The older man had his arm so lovingly around the little boy.
After our meeting ended we took a farm tour!
These are actually olive trees because they have been cultivated in rows. Argan trees, on the other hand, cannot be cultivated. They are merely acts of God wherever they appear. So so cool and such apt imagery for so many precious things.
A perfect argan tree! We traveled a ways to get to it.
My awesome friend Sue (from China Teachers) sent me this picture from a trip to Morocco she and Rick took. I think this probably takes place when the seed/nut is a little more mature.

At the end of our farm visit--but not before we sat down to bread dipped in argan oil, dates, almonds and walnuts ("It is particularly delicious to open the date and insert a walnuts!"), oranges and mint tea, we were presented with this. I love it beyond even words. We will hoard it to the last lazy shake-the-bottle drop...
