Ramadan Kareem to you all. It’s the first day of Ramadan, the start of the holy month here in the U.A.E. and it’s also July’s Project 10 day. I shot this 2 days ago as the school holidays had started – it was a day of hanging out, heading to the supermarket and also delivering gifts to a charity that gives toys to children who will be spending Ramadan in hospital – charity is an important component of this month. We then headed home and hung out some more – everything that holidays should be!
Early morning games of Minion Rush – the whole family is addicted – and can’t wait for Despicable Me 2 to come out – although it’s not coming out here until after Ramadan so we’re told 🙁
