Sunset Tranquility


One of the things I like most about Ramadan is that feeling of "unity" among people. They all fast at the same time and break their fast at the exact same time. During the last minutes before sunset, Damascus streets are usually bustling with cars and traffic jams; and by the time a cannon shot announces iftar, the whole city comes to a complete standstill. It's amazing how calm and peaceful Damascus looks at sunset... try taking a quick peak out of your window during your next iftar!
