Gluttony and Bad Traffic: My Ramadan

Thank you, Al-Hajeri/Al-Saraie Family!

Thank you, Kim! 

Happy birthday, girl!

Thank you, Al-Roomi family!

Thank you, Mom & Dad Al-Enezi!


I'm not fasting.  I have no shame about that.  What I do in Ramadan isn't to pretend - I just eat when invited.  And lately I've been invited - a lot.  I don't, however, think it is appropriate for my hosts (adopted Mom & Dad)  to tell me that I've gained weight and then insist that I eat heaping plate loads of food.  It isn't fair.  Tell me that I'm "too skinny and should eat more."  That will do it.

I'm loving the food.

What I'm not loving is the traffic.  Holy sh...  This year it is the worst EVER.  I've been in a lot of near misses this Ramadan and then the people who are at fault start honking.  Kuwaitis never used to use their horns before; it would have caused a fight. Not anymore.  We are a suburb of Egypt and the honking is ON.

Taken by ME, at 12:32 am in downtown Kuwait. 

So anyhoo, that is my Ramadan summary in a nutshell:  lots of food and bad traffic.  It was 107 today.  I was in traffic.  I had to eat to make myself feel better.  Yeah... that's the excuse....

Hope you all are having a happy Ramadan! :)
