Ramadan dinner in Dubai

Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting prayer, reflection and community.

That means they don’t eat during the day, but once the sun goes down, people often gather in banquet spaces to have a big communal dinner. They used to do that in tents, so they are still referred to as tents. Even this place is still referred to as a tent, just for the occasion.

This was at the Madinat Jumeirah, which is an area with shops and restaurants, but the Dubai police in this area also help announce that fasting is over for the day by firing a cannon. It was loud and at the time I saw it, I had no idea why they were firing a cannon.

And oddly, our tent was sponsored by Lamborghini. This is their new off-road version.
