The First Day

The first day of Ramadan is always an interesting start, I was thirsty by noon and just kept wanting water. I really don’t have any issues with not eating, getting parched is what gets to you. After futoor I felt like passing out but we had to go to some Dewaneyas as part of tradition.

I thought it wouldn’t take longer then an hour and a half, but I was long it took about three hours of driving around from Dewaneya to Dewaneya and taking no longer then 10 mins at each. It was quite hectic and lots of people going around, its nice seeing all these people but I was exhausted and wanted to pass out. By the time we were done I was sleepy and starving, I didn’t know whether to sleep or eat. I met up with some of my friends and we order Zait o Zaatar, I fell asleep before the food arrived. Everyone has their theory about what you should eat so you won’t be hungry or thirsty the next day, but at that point I would eat anything in front of me. It was a good day and hopefully it won’t take too long to finish all the rounds.
