Over?

Yep, Ramadan has come to an end! Pretty quickly this year, may I add.

Highlights this year included; eating like there's no tommorow, short-fuses during the daytime, ridiculously busy traffic, 321 Action (and the embarrasment it caused to Bahrain TV), the other ridiculous-plot Ramadan TV shows, the regular gahwa and tent hopping, cruising around, the weather finally improving, staying out late, shopping (mostly women) and of course, a reasonable amount of increased religious activity.

Yes, another Ramadan has come and went, and Eid is very nearly upon us. Everywhere seems to be busy; the shops are full at night with people rushing the last few minutes to buy their new Eid clothes. Today the bank has been buzzing with people coming and going trying to get the "new notes" to give out to the children for eid. Lights are springing up all over the buildings, in diplomatic area, near Seef, in the neighborhoods and so on (just pass by during night and see the place glow), and yes, i'm sure most of us are looking forward to that huge Eid lunch (Oh man, lunch at my Grandma's place for eid. That roast lamb. Oh.. Drool..)

I wish you a happy eid, and every year and you are ok :) (كل عام و انتو بخير)

You too, Eid Mubarak!

I remember the day you posted about your fasting experience before the official start of Ramadan..feels like yesterday!

You know what? I was just scanning the archives section and observe an ascending amount of posts from the summer months onwards! What astounds me is that you post so frequently, yet each post is so different, so unique, and so informative...and most of all fun. If there is any kind of Middle East blog award thing, I would definitely vote for you. I don't know how the whole thing works, but if the time comes, let me know :)

Ciao and have a lovely Eid, you, your wife and all your readers! :)
