A light in the night

On last Friday night I went to my first Ramadan dinner- my lovely neighbours who hail from Egypt invited me to break the daily fast with them that night. H wasn't kidding when she said we will eat at 9:10pm. Precisely. We ate the minute the sun went down. We dined on chicken, meat patties, a pasta dish and stuffed peppers (my favorite). We also drank a red juice and an apricot juice to finish.

After dinner I played a couple games of chess with their son. I'm holding my own against the 7 year old, despite having only played a few times when I was in elementary school myself. I love playing with those kids- sweethearts! I am honored to be included with their family.
