It's Ramadan here in Egypt. Since it's only the first day of Ramadan and since it's my first Ramadan, I'm not really sure what it entails. All I know is that there are pretty lanterns everywhere, Andrew's school schedule will be all messed up for the first few weeks of classes, we're not suppose to eat/drink in public during the day, and shopping the night before Ramadan is a little crazy.
I'm sure we'll learn a lot more as Ramadan continues.
Last night after putting Rachel to bed we went outside to take a picture of our apartment building's Ramadan lamp. We had our tripod, our camera, and our baby monitor. Everyone walking by looked at us like we were crazy. I'm not sure if it was because we stood there taking picture after picture of a lamp, or if it was because I was holding a baby monitor blaring Italian Primary songs...
Just our own little way of bringing in the Ramadan season. Happy Ramadan!
