My First Ramadan in The US

Wow, where did the time go? Without I even realized it, it’s already the last week of Ramadan. This Ramadan marks my first Ramadan after I got married and moved to the US. It means it’s also our first Ramadan together, R and I πŸ™‚ I was inspired by Deny’s blog post about her Ramadan experience in The Netherlands so I decided to share my story too.

Although it was cold at most times, I used to go to the beach after classΒ or after I got off from work, just to enjoy the atmosphere while waiting for sunset.
