[AET] Al Hafla 2010

Through Winter's bleak silence comes a Bedouin's plaintive call. Harken! Harken to the call of the desert sands. Hear the music call you to Al-Hafla. Come, let your spirit soar on the wings of dance. Experience the art of henna. Let the savory food of the sand's denizens fill your belly and senses. Glory in the warmth of friends, old and new.

Come, come to Al-Hafla. the Incipient Shire of Ballachlagan and the Shire of Kings Crossing invite you to join in celebrating all things Middle Eastern. Come. To A Winter Oasis.

Many will be the day's activities. Classes on all things Middle Eastern shall be held for your edification. An A&S display of the talent and work of Middle Eastern craftspersons shall dazzle your mind. The beauty of the music and dancers will enthrall you and solicitous merchants will await you, seeking to fulfill your desires.
