The Rounds


The first day of Ramadan was a nice start since work wasn’t too much and I had a few errands to run before going to futoor. I went to futoor to my brothers house, and I wasn’t that hungry when I went but I was thirsty after a long day.

The best thing about the whole day is seeing my nephew and my niece! My nephew can now say my name has morhped from Agoog to Ma-soooook which is funny. I really missed those little two even though it was only two weeks and a bit.

After futoor I went with some Family members to do the rounds and one thing is for sure going from Dewaneya to Dewaneya is a great tradition. You get to see a lot of people, and its interesting how they schedule all these visits, one thing I really liked was seeing all these old Dewaneyas which kept the old Kuwaiti architecture in great condition.

We started around 7:30pm and we finished around 10:30pm, and that is only the first set of the day. Then over the next week there are other rounds to be made, and it starts right after Isha prayer. I can imagine how tiresome this can get, but this is the first time for me so it is interesting making these rounds.
