Café Maure de la Mosquée
Sweets & The Secrets of Eastern Beauty
Sunday, 28 June 2015 at 2:30 pm.
Join us for an exotic cultural experience that will take you away to one of Paris's most tranquil spots - Café Maure de la Mosquée
This particular Paris Cafe Talk will be extra special. Our guest host Sondes will guide a tour in English of the Mosque, including its Hammam. We will learn about its unique architecture, history and traditions. The tour will conclude at the famous Cafe Maure - within the Mosque grounds - where we can enjoy fresh mint tea and oriental sweets. Sandos will lead a discussion about Oriental traditions, rituals, and even beauty secrets. Wendy will then talk about her recent trip to Dubai and Abu Dhabi -- from camel farms, sleeping in the desert to even drinking coffee with golden powder in a palace-like hotel.
The afternoon will be a great chance to meet with each other before the Summer rolls in and to build bridges with other cultures. Each participant will go home with their name written in Arabic.
Entrance Fee: 3,00 Euros
Cafe Fee: In line with Arab hospitality, the tea house welcomes us with a 20% discount and they have put together for us - for those who would like to order - a 9,00 Euros special tea time snack which includes tea and pastries.
Please Note: Members will need to pay their own entrance fee and purchase their own snacks.
Meeting Venue: The main entrance of the Mosque, 2 bis Place du Puits de l'Ermite, Paris 75005 at 2:30 pm
