i will miss ...

Ramadan

waiting by the Red Sea and watching the sun set to mark the time to break the fast


while children run and play together

laying out family contributions to the picnic


entertaining visiting family too

walking along the Corniche watching other picnickers

the ice cream vans along the road

the kiosks selling cheap plastic seaside ware

the children selling face cloths

the ladies walking by decorating hands with henna

I will miss Ramadan in Jeddah

Assalaamu Alaikum sister!
I can imagine how much you would miss, Qadarallaah Maashaa Allaah, I just feel it within me, if I were to leave I would feel the same too! May Allaah bless you and give you success and tranquillity wherever you live. Aameen!

Ramadan sounds nice where you are. We don't have quite the same experience here. If I go out, I like to get home early, otherwise traffic is crazy. Wishing you and yours Eid Mubarak. Tammy
