This was always going to be a year of change. I knew that. A year back (lol). But I wasn't prepared for the extremity of the new-ness.
I now sit in a different room, a different house, a different neighbourhood, a different city and a different country.
A different country. That's the important bit.
Nothing is the same. Not even the clouds. You should check out the clouds here. That's the first thing I noticed about this city.
The second really really weird thing about here is the sun beating down at 7pm in the evening! Imagine that.
Thirdly, the length of fasts here! 5.20 am suhoor time ends, and fasting begins. Ends at 8.45 pm!!
Water is drunk directly from the taps. I still need to get used to that taste.
All nationalities converge in the masjid for iftaar and taraweeh.. :). Loved that bit!
Welcome to America.
