Ramadan

Ramadan July 31, 2011

I’m visiting Turkey right now, and two days of my stay will overlap with Ramadan, starting tomorrow.

It’s a country where it’s very hard to get away from religion in the best of times. (Plus everyone always assumes everyone else is Muslim.) Now, on the eve of Ramadan, it’s all Islam all the time. I’ve already had enough. At least I’m in a big city, so I expect I’ll still be able to get some food and drink during the daytime in areas tourists are likely to hang around in.
