I noticed this plant against the white wall and liked the clean look of the image. The friend didn't know what it was, but a search in Wikipedia appears to identify it as a form of Aloe Vera. This plant is part of a species of succulent plant that probably originated in the southern half of the Arabian peninsula, Northern Africa, the Canary islands and Cape Verde. Aloe vera is valued for its medicinal qualities.
