This is me on a street in Egypt posing with a man selling sweet things!

Timbits: Timbits is the brand name of bite-sized doughnut balls sold at the Canadian Tim Hortons restaurant chain. The treats were introduced in April 1976 and are now available in a selection of varieties that differs from store to store. Flavours include chocolate, jelly-filled, "dutchie," honey dip, sour cream glazed, and apple fritter.[1]

The things I learn from your photos (via Ahmed)! As a young man, I worked in a pastry shop in NYC and these very same things were called loukoumades. Fascinating:

Oh, yes Elian! we "Levantines" Call it Luqmat Alqady, but some of the arabian gulf countries call it "Lukaymat" which means "Bits" mostly the same pronunciation!

Thank you Ahmed. Whatever the name or origin, they are delicious!

Ha ha, Sean. He's not so huge: he was standing on the pavement and I was on the streets, so he had a few inches over me...
