Eid Mubarak

First of all, Eid Mubarak to everyone…

Yesterday was the first day of Eid ul-Fitr here in Tunisia, as well as in most Arab and Muslim countries, marking the end of Ramadan for this year.

This Ramadan was a bit harder than previous ones, mainly because the weather is still hot, and the day is long; still it’s only a preview of what’s coming in the next years as Ramadan advances well into the burning hot endless summer days.

As usual, we hopped into our little car and zipped around Tunis, greeting family members and wishing them all a happy and blessed Eid.

Now we’ll be back to our usual lifestyle and daily routine, back to a normal diet, back to everything as it was a month ago; I hope, at least, that some people will take away something more from it than just a few extra kilos from all the eating and sweets, something a bit more spiritual.

Again, may it be a blessed and happy Eid for everyone.
