OUJDA
Ramadan cookies

Oujda, Morocco

This is from Ramadan in 1997. As the fast breaking festival is getting closer and closer more cookies are baked. These guys, working in a small bakery down from Bab el-Wahab, probably looked forward to the day when life returned to normal, forced as they were to work day and night to keep customers happy.
