Today is the first day of Ramadan in the UAE. For the next 30 days, the normal process is that everyone is to fast from sun up until sundown. You can drink water, but no food, no smoking, and no alcohol consumption. When the temps in Dubai are reaching 110 during the day, it is a good thing that we can drink water. The internet cafe (MAKE) has made arrangements to close off their windows with curtains so that the patrons can still eat and drink and check their emails on the internet. This way any body passing by will not be upset with people eating and drinking in the cafe.
I might be hanging out at MAKE a little more often this week since my air conditioning unit at the villa went on the fritz. I use a fan to cool off at night but that only goes so far. The AC repairman claims he will be by the villa to fix it, but with Ramadan in full swing it might take a little longer to get the parts and pieces in a timely fashion.
