  1. 1. ALGERIA BY KATIE FEGAN AFRICA IS A HAPPY PLACE
  2. 2. WHERE IS ALGERIA?????? Here it is :P
  3. 3. WHAT WILL I BE COVERING???? I will look at the foods and traditions of the Algerian people, as well as SOME geographical information!
  4. 4. GEOGRAPHICAL STUFF <ul><li>The population is around 34,895,000 </li></ul><ul><li>Along the costal area it is hilly, mountainous and there are even some natural harbours </li></ul><ul><li>The area along the coasts are fertile </li></ul><ul><li>The Ahagger mountain, know as the Hogger, is the highest mountain in Algeria, located in the south of Algeria. </li></ul><ul><li>The capital city is Algiers </li></ul><ul><li>The official language is Arabic </li></ul>
  5. 5. FOOD!!!! <ul><li>Algeria’s national food is couscous </li></ul><ul><li>They drink a starchy called salhab in the winter </li></ul><ul><li>The favourite drink throughout alegeria is mint herbal tea </li></ul><ul><li>They use many seasons in their food </li></ul><ul><li>Mechoui is the name of roasted lamb that has been cooked outside.
