Senoufou:I'd forgotten about Ramadan (started yesterday), so no TV snacks for poor husband during the football. Not even a glass of lemonade, until dusk falls.
....but then he can have Iftar! Ramadan Kareem to him.
Actually, it must be quite a strain for Muslims in latitudes away from the tropics when Ramadan falls in the summer months. At least in the middle east the sun sets by about 7pm, and rises about 0530-0600 this time of year. Must be really tough on Muslims in Tromsoe or Reykjavik!
Just to clarify my previous post, although I do British Military Fitness (BMF) and military-style endurance marches, I was never in the military. BMF is run on military PT lines by former serving soldiers, but it's fitness training for civilians.
