It has been ramadan for


It has been ramadan for the past month, which has been rather a big deal in Tanzania. At the end of ramadan it is the eid celebration, and that means a public holiday. However, eid only comes when the new moon has been seen. So it is not a definite date. The whole country didn't know if the holiday was Tuesday and Wednesday or Wednesday and Thursday. I was outside peering at the sky for ages, wondering if I could have a drink or not.

As it happens eid began on Wednesday. A nice midweek weekend.
