Wednesday 24 July

A lovely summer's day, which I spent monment tside. The sky provided plenty of entertainment, with a lot of varying high level cloud. Mercury reached 23C / 74F for the second time this month. The day ended with a beautiful sunset at 10 o'clock.

It was pointed out to me that it's Ramadan at the moment, a tough time for Muslims anywhere in the world, but particularly for the faithful in this part of the world. The hours of darkness stretch only from 11.15pm to 3.30am, meaning only about 4 hours for breaking the fast. Ramadan will run for another ten days or so.
