Romdhankom Mabrouk

Well today is the first day of Ramadan in Tunisia, so Ramadan Mubarak to everyone :)

Woke up at 4:10AM today for Suhour, and we had the Tunisian specialty “Mesfouf” (an even finer type of Couscous eaten with milk, dates, dried grapes and almond), Yummy.
After that i prayed my first prayer of the day on time, yep not only have i started praying, i’m also praying on time, lol, i hope it lasts :P
Then i went back to sleep only to wake up a couple of hours later, as today work-time changes too (From 8 to 3 non-stop).

I was expecting to wake up in a mess after the tiresome weekend and not enough sleep, but in fact i woke up in great shape, and feeling really good, so hopefully i’ll have a good day today :)

We’ll be going over to my parent’s place in La Marsa for Futour (Breaking of fast) today, so i’ll hopefully be passing by this Tunisian sweets shop there to buy some “Zlabia” (one of my favourite Tunisian sweets in Ramadan).

Ah, i can just breathe Ramadan in the air, and it feels great :)

    Hey…or actually Romdhankom Mabrouk.
    I found ur thoughts by pure casuality, searching 4 something else and i stop by and red what u wrote here.
    It tuched me in a very special way and for a minute it made be dream a little bit.
    U r very lucky to be able to feel all that magic that Ramadan brings, bcs u r there, in a muslim country, with all ur family, specially there in Tunisia where at each corner there is a little piece of magic.
    I wish one day i could feel the same things during the Ramadan and not only tears and loneliness, like i do right now…
    Anyway, thank u for this magic lines who brought me a little piece of Tunisia back 2 my heart…
