Ramadan Kareem to you all ---- that's a bit like Happy Christmas, just a cheerful greeting
It's the second day of the holy month of Ramadan to those who share the Moslem faith
The way the month is celebrated is to fast (no food, no liquid) from dawn to dusk.
This morning, 06.00 to 09.00 about 30 of us were out for a lovely bike ride. One of the best so far - clear summer morning, no wind, no blown sand which is quite a change from how it's been for the last couple of months - still hot, but a lot less than over the last few months
About 15 of the riders are Bahraini Moslems, and they didn't have any bottles on their bikes. People asked at the start - 'don't you need any water?' And, ' What about us non-Moslems - should we not take any water either - after all, we're in your country?'
Response was - 'Don't be daft - we're doing this for our reasons, you all ride as you prefer'
I understand it, I don't share it, but I certainly admire it. It was a great ride
