Ramazan

Ramazan started a couple of days ago. Feels like Turkey is moving in slow motion...

30 days without eating during sunlight to burn away your sins and show Allah your belief. We were told not to walk the streets when sun sets because then people would rush home like a hord of gnus and there were risk to be trampled to death. This is not the case. Instead people are sleeping through the days and celebrating the dark with big feasts where people come togheter and eat.

This weekend we were woken up by the Ramazan drummer, who walks the streets and waking people up for last meal before dawn. Cool experience, but this month I'm going to sleep with earplugs!
