Ashura

I’m currently at work right now and it’s very quiet. It’s not busy at all knowing that I’m blogging from my phone. Today is Ashura, I’m not sure how it is spelled but that’s how they pronunce it. It’s a Holiday for the Muslims that is similar to the self-flagellation during our Holy Week in the Christian community. Although, with the Muslim, they have a different story and names of prophets but it’s kind of..the same.

So today our restaurant is not closed. Although.. It’s very boring because no music is allowed to be played.

Only now that I realized that there is a special occassion and the reason for a lot of checkpoints as I was on my way back to our accommodation.
