Ramadan Night in Cairo

Ramadan has a tendency to bend space and time. For those participating in the fast, especially in the summer, the daytime hours crawl by like a snail on tranquilizers, while daily routines are like running a marathon through a desert of thirst. In contrast, nights are transformed into veritable days, with cafés and restaurants bursting at the seams late into the night, especially in my hometown of Cairo.

Splendid words, written by an author I wish to know more, Khaled Diab. I dream being there, on a Cairo street, busy with cafés and stores and small restaurants, on one of these holy nights of joy and frenzy after a whole day of fast.
