Once a year, for an entire month, the whole country reverses their biological clocks. They sleep all day, eat all night, gain another 100 or so pounds, and then at the end of the month, they thank the lord for ending the misery that they were in! Televisions run special programs in the evenings, feasts abound, even the construction workers work at night. All the markets remain open till like three, in the morning. Sounds a bit like Rio during the festival. You could throw some beads at a Saudi woman, and she might lift her veil and show you her face! Saudi woman throws the bead at the man, Saudi man catches it, holds it in his hand, and starts counting the number of stones in it.
That is a common sight in KSA however. Most funny Saudi men will walk around with a set of beads in their hands while running their hands through them. Supposedly, they are reciting some weird shit from the Koran. So, for a month, the month of Ramadan, KSA turns into Brazil, minus the babes, bikinis, booze…bam!
