This entry will be brief.
Made it through another day without "cheating" on the fast.
Went to the usual salsa club for a karaoke night. The place was all decorated for Ramadan and looked so nice. There were some really good people singing which of course discouraged me from trying. Also, a lot of the songs were arabic, and I hesitated to ruin the flow of the evening by throwing in some random old-school country. There were 2 salsa songs that I got to dance which made me feel better about missing last night. However, dancing salsa is a challenge, especially when one is wearing cheap 50 le flip flops with crystalline flowers adorning them. I did manage to keep them on my feet and ironically, it was my partner who had to stop the dance to tie his shoe :)
Sahoor was soooo much food but sooo tasty. Ful, bread, white cheese, tea, juice, water....I'm too full to lay here or think properly. I really think my stomach is shrinking. Makes you think about people who never get to have a huge meal, are always hungry, and never know when their next meal will come. I want to find a way to help.
