The sense of tradition here is extremely strong. I am not talking only about the聽fact that people pray five times a day; I am talking about the atmosphere that聽one can breath in the air. I am talking about聽people聽wearing traditional clothes, as well as about groups of men kneeling down as they gather to pray. When you are in this country you find yourself聽wearing long skirts because you want to respect local traditions, and therefor you also stop looking at men鈥檚 eyes. You can easily find directions to the closest mosque in聽your hotel room. People keep tradition alive; it is not seen as an uncomfortable load to carry along their path.

Religion leads their world; it is forbidden to smoke and drink alcool almost everywhere. Religion demands a whole聽month of purification from dawn to sunset. Only children and those who are sick聽can avoid ramadan聽鈥 the holy month that connects tradition and聽religion, past and future. I admire their strength and their perseverance; their devotion and their commitment in keeping old traditions alive.

I wasn鈥檛 allowed to visit the聽Jumeirah Mosque; however this is building is worth a visit also from outside. Its main entrance is open only on rare occasions. You can visit the mosque everyday at 10am 鈥 except on Fridays. Women are equipped with聽a black tunic that covers the whole body 鈥 besides聽the eyes. You need to leave your shoes outside. Traditions must be always respected.

See you tomorrow
