Ramadan in Sana’a

What was formerly a busy market street on Sana’a’s Tahrir Square is reduced during daylight hours to a row of shuttered shops. The morning streets are strangely quiet as fasters lie in bed, taking refuge from the hot, waterless days. After iftar, the meal to break the fast, the day really begins and the city comes alive until late into the night.
