Happy Eid!

Huhhot market

Market stalls outside the Great Mosque with lots of goodies for entertaining guests during the month of Ramadan in Huhhot, Inner Mongolia. Cookies, deep fried wheat doughs, sweet things for dunking in tea.

Today Muslims around the world celebrate Eid al-Fitr (“Roza heyit” in Xinjiang), the feast  day that marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting from dawn to dusk (if it is allowed, anyway).  Excellent feasts will be had today.

I wish my friends around the world a safe and happy celebration!
