As Millhouse says, Ramadan Kareem. Except that, as usual here in Oman, Ramadan will be a day later than the rest of the GCC as there was no sighting of the moon here last night so Ramadan doesn’t begin until this evening.

I saw the other day that the setting of the sun for iftar happens 4 minutes later at the top of the Burj Khalifa than it does at the bottom.

I used to love going up to the roof on the first night and looking for the moon to make my own unofficial sighting and declaration.

Sarcasm isn't very accepting, patient or loving. Come on mate, make it past day one before you **** up.

point taken mate, although its still the first day and going through withdrawls on so many levels, I deserve a mulligan

but to be honest it was more of a sad statement of fact about the whole Muslim killing Muslims scenario in other countries and yet being oblivious to their pain and suffering while still having a pious outlook on life
anyway, goal this month is 5 kilos off the gut and hopefully stay off the statins

Off-topic side note: Did you ever make it to the Baltics? How did you find it?
