I have observed this Muslim commitment in some brief comments on Facebook. It certainly makes the experience of being in Dubai this month somewhat different. At the moment it is lunchtime on Sunday (June 28th) and I’m trying to find a place to have some food – one that is not junk-food from Burger King or similar. Even having a coffee earlier this morning required conforming to the strict rules. However I managed to find somewhere that served ‘Americano’ – what we call a long black. I’m heading out on a Desert Safari, into the red sands around 4pm through to about 9pm. An Arabian night sky should be interesting. More on my stay here for the past 48 hours in a link I will add a little later this evening (local time).
