Eid Mubarak

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

After Ramadan is over, Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr, also called Feast of Breaking the Fast, an important religious holiday. Eid is a single day during which Muslims are not permitted to fast since it celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

🌵 Hoy empieza la celebración de Eid. En estos dias se festeja el fin del mes de Ramadan. Por tres dias las familias se juntan para convivir y celebrar.


We celebrated by going to my host dad's extended family's home for lunch. It was about a 40 minute drive out of Muscat to Barka.

🌵 Nosotros fuimos a la casa de un familiar como unos 40 minutos de la capital.

I really liked my dress in theory but OMG I was not feeling it on, it was not flattering and I look like I am six months pregnant! WAH lol. But really. The food was soo good (and got actually pregnant with food baby) and I wanted to swim in that (cooked) goat, sorry Mackenzie. It was so funny last night at 2am Yuri and I were like exfoliating, moisturizing, fixing our nails, etc. When Omani girls have probably been getting ready a week beforehand.

some guys waiting till 1am, day before, to get that Eid haircut

as you've noticed we eat on the floor, as Yuri said when we see the plastic laid out you know food is not too far.
Anyways. It was fun spending Ramadan in Oman. But I am excited to be able to hope over to the coffee shop at any time, have lunch out, catch a tan, show below my knee without guilt (jk). Also, in these next few days we are due to enjoy some evening salsa dance (I will watch haha), maybe have a margarita. That kind of atmosphere is well deserved.💃

🌵 Me encanto mi vestido, pero ya puesto no se sentia muy bien. Siento que me miraba embarazada haha. La comida estaba rica, mucha carne y arroz. Que son los platillos mas comunes aqui.

Estuvo divertido pasar Ramadan aqui pero estamos emocionadas para ir al cafe a cualquier hora, desayunar por la playa, o agarrar un poquito de color. En unos dias vamos a salir a bailar, o en mi caso ver la gente bailar, salsa.
