Dear Denis Sullivan,
With the arrival of the month of Ramadan, we will preview changes to the daily routine in Jordan (and throughout the world).
Of the most visible changes will be that nearly all markets and restaurants are closed for most of the day. Eating, drinking (and smoking) publicly also become essentially unlawful in light of the fast being observed by over ninety percent of the people. At sunset, however, city life reawakens in full. Mosques overflow in the evenings. Invitations to festive dinners from neighbors, family and friends are common.
