Well folks, it's officially the end of Ramadan, the holy month in the Islam religion where people fast during the day. It's over and there is much rejoicing ... outside my window. It's 11:40 p.m. and there are prayers coming from the mosques, fireworks and celebrations galore! It started at 8 and it's still going strong.
