The Ramadan Effect

Standard

Day 2 of Ramadan and we have been invited to our first Iftar tonight and an opportunity to show self discipline in the midst of what should be a cavalcade of food

The last time we visited these hosts we had a truly Arabian experience with a lot of  good local cuisine and equally good company. The air was filled with laughter and Arabic music.

Their villa is exquisitely fitted out with large fluffy sofas set out in a courtyard filled with tea candles and a humidifier that wafts cooling mist around your feet.

I’m off to get ready, meanwhile have a read of  the following article about Ramadan in Egypt. It’s interesting to note that although it is a time of fasting, there is ample time after sunset to make up any lack.
