Ramadan Festival

Right now, we are ending the month of Ramadan, which for people here signifies the end of a month of fasting all day (eating only at night) and praying. We went to one of the more popular areas of town because we heard it is a spectacle to see the crowd of people all breaking fast together at sunset. Due to the crowds at this particular place, there were so many street vendors, some sort of ceremony/concert, and even fair-like booths set up. It was amazing to me how many locals (not just tourists) were out to join the fun! UPDATE: Scroll down to the bottom to see a short video clip.
