By distinguished proposition and widespread support we are now starting a monthly "places and events" thread.
The point is to share
This idea of this thread is to share landmarks, tourist sites, special destinations, restaurants, or any place of interest you can think of.
You can share a place you've been to, or from your hometown, or somewhere you've heard about you'd like to know more about.
It would be helpful to add things to keep in mind for these places. For instance tourist traps that overcharge and maybe certain things not to do in certain communities.
I'd like to add, please consider if such places are accepting, tolerant and/or safe. In particular for women, foreigners and perhaps even the disabled.
We may eventually aggregate the collective knowledge into a wiki.
By reasonable request, we have started a weekly thread on Algerian Colloquial Arabic - Darja.
Algeria has it's own Colloquial Arabic. To many other Arabic speakers, it can sometimes sound very foreign. Almost another language. But there is a method to the language.
Let's share it here!
Have you heard something in Darja that you didn't understand? Ask what it meant here!
Want to know how to say something in Darja? Ask how to say it here!
Want to know how to transliterate a Darja word in to/from Arabic Chat alphabet or Arabic Script? Here's the place to ask how!
We're on week 4 of this thread. I think it has been a success so far, and will continue it for the foreseeable future.
I only ask that community members contribute a tidbit every so often to keep it alive.
A new sticky thread is started every week on Saturday.
A friend told me that it is possible to get a cash loan for the equivalent of $80k USD in Algeria (for up to 3 years). Is this true? I have some real estate I could invest in with this cash if this was true.
azul my algerian brothers, I came here today to ask you, what the price on Kabylie cross necklace costs (prefereble in TND) as im not algerian im actually half Tunisian. im interested to get one, problem is I dont remember exactly how it looked like it looked as if it was decorated with colourful glass and gold/silver metal on the outsides of the glass
(P.S i didnt choose to ask in r/kabylie as I dont speak kabylie nor do I speak french)
Anyone knows where can I go Skydiving in Algeria?, and if possible how much does it cost?
I am a 17 year old Algerian guy born and raised in the USA. I thought it would be interesting to share what its like being an Algerian teenager growing up in the US, and connect with others of my background which is usually hard to do here!
Visiting family and I wanna know if there are any places gay men hang out that I can go to? I have a car I can use so travelling around the city is easy.
Also what is gay hook up culture like in Algeria? Is it done outside or in people's houses??
I was born in France where i lived all my life. We (arabs in France) might be a strong minority but minority nonetheless so chance are, you'll find a french girlfriend (i mean french french). So as you guess I got a french catholic girlfriend (11years now!) and my parent don't like the way it is going to be, saying i should be with a muslim lady because of this, because of that and blablabla.
But as a couple it is very cool, i mean i'm muslim i do muslim thing and she is catholic, she do catholic things. We respect each other and everything is great. (It is called love i think lol)
So, how do you see this? (in term of marriage, babies,etc.) Is it that bad? How do you think my algerian relatives will react? And how people of algeria might think (elders and the new generation?)
