Living in Algeria, Africa
Algeria is in North Africa and was a French colony until 1962. Most of the country is in the Sahara desert and Algeria is known to have the biggest sand dunes (known as ergs). It is also known for its many ancient ruins and breathtaking buildings.
Although Algeria was a French colony, the official language is Arabic and this is spoken by 80 per cent of the population. However, many of the locals are bilingual and speak both Arabic and French.
Algeria is regarded as a fairly liberal nation as equality for women is protected in both the law and constitution. The country is home to many well educated women in high positions - most of the university students are female and indeed most lawyers and judges in the country are also female.
Weather in Algeria
The weather in the country is dry to semi-dry with hot, dry summers. Sandy or dusty winds (sirocco) are common in the summer.
Religion in Algeria
Algeria is a Muslim country and most of the population follow Sunni Islam. The remaining one per cent of those who live here are Christians and there is also a very small Jewish population.
Population and Economy in Algeria
Algeria has a population of 37 million and most people live in the northern coastal regions. The biggest export is fossil fuels and this makes up 30 per cent of the GDP. Nearly 15 per cent of the population work in agriculture growing, among other things, olives, wheat, barley and citrus fruits.
Food and Culture in Algeria
If you require removals to Africa and shipping to Africa to settle in Algeria, you won't be disappointed by the food.
You will find many delicious dishes on the menu including: couscous, a char-grilled lamb dish called Mechoui, Algerian pizza and tangine, to name a few.
Lifestyle and Etiquette in Algeria
Algeria is a mainly Muslim country so it is important to be respectful at all times and to dress modestly.
Although it is possible to buy alcohol in some places, this varies according to where you live and some cities do ban shops selling alcohol and also forbid bars.
If you are female, some religious men will not shake hands with you, as a sign of respect. Honour and status is important so make sure you address people by their title and then their surname.
It is important to give people gifts, although never bring alcohol if you are invited to a person's home. Flowers such as roses, pastry or fruit will suffice and bring some sweets for the children.
If you are attending a family meal, take your shoes off at the door and always address the oldest person first, then greet people from the right as you move around the room. At the table, you will normally eat with your right hand and you must wash your hands before and after the meal.
Always leave something on your plate after eating, or your plate will get filled up again.
