Arabic students gathered on Friday at Lake Cheston for an "Arabic Coffee House" activity. They sampled Arabic coffee and sweets, including حلاوة a sweet tahini paste with pistacios,  قمر الدين (apricot paste made into a juice) and of course بلح (dates). Some students sampled شيشة (water pipe) and drew designs with الحنة (henna).
