Default How Many Has It Been For You?

Whilst driving across the dunes from Dibba today, I realised that I am enjoying/enduring my tenth consecutive Holy Month of Ramadan here in a Muslim Arab country. So how many has it been for you? Who do you think among us has been here the longest? My guess is Dean but I could be well off the mark.

15th Ramadan (I think)..... but they were not consecutive, so if 'Most Consecutive' is the Oscar category, then I may get a nomination, but the award goes to Indie, unless there are some 'late entries'?

I work with a nice man who has been in the region for 33 years - and this is his 34th Ramadan........ now who could possibly beat that??

My first Ramadan (only been here 7 months...) and I've found the fasting getting easier day by day - first week was headachy every evening but this week just gone, no probs going the whole day.

(that said I've been snacking today, I can't help myself at weekends, week days far easier with work keeping my busy!)
