Eid Mubarak!

Today is Eid ul-Fitr or عيد الفطر, the holiday that marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan as well as of the dawn-to-dusk fasting usually maintained during that month.

  1. Oh yes! and we have a substantial Muslim population for whom it is a very important day.
    I have been to Humayun's Tomb and have some snaps but this picture is absolutely stunning.

  2. Eid Mubarak!

    I must admit, it's nice to be back in the US, where coffee shops open before 8 PM. I was starting to become used to not having caffeine, and that is just wrong.
