Again Amir Normandi, and a new series of controversial postcards and this time about Ramadan.
Simply during this month you can’t eat, drink (Don’t get me wrong I didn’t mean alcoholic drink. I meant water and non-alcoholic drinks) and smoke in public during daytime even if you’re not Muslim! In Iran they flog you at least 60 times or 100 times (I don’t remember exact number) and put you in the jail then you will learn not to eat anymore! So you should get it that all restaurants, fast foods, coffee shops and so on are closed during daytime. People go to work later than usual time because they spend their midnight time to pray! Probably Allah make world better place while they are praying and not working! Traffic during sunset is crazy, crazy, crazy! Because everybody run to catch some foods in mosque or home. Smokers count down to smoke again and you can see smokers line up outside and smoke, just you can’ breath anymore! Well, you know people who wants to eat or drink, they do it secretly and you can find lots of smokers in companies on the roof during work hours that smoke. It’s kinda like show that we have it every year for a month! You gotta watch it.
