A young Arab boy asks his father:
What is this strange hat that we are wearing?
It's a "chechia" - because in the desert it protects our heads from the sun.
And what is this weird type of clothing that we are wearing?
It's a "djbellah" - because in the desert it is very hot and it protects your body!
And what are these ugly shoes that we have on our feet?
These are "babouches" - which keep us from burning our feet on the hot desert sand!
Tell me, papa...
Yes, my son?
