Tomorrow morning is starting Ramadan(22.08.2009). Let's see....

It is the Islamic month of fasting, in which participating Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking, and indulging in anything that is in excess or ill-natured; from dawn until dusk 

Dusk is the beginning of darkness in the evening.

Dawn time that marks the beginning of the twilight before sunrise.

For non-Muslims, the UAE's law ban eating and drinking in public during Ramadan.

ban - to forbid(= refuse to allow)

First day of Ramadan was for me good. All restaurants were closed on this day. I didn't see anyone drinking or eating. Tomorrow is work day for me. Let's see:) I 'm sure that will be tough.

I my opinion Ramadan for Non-Muslim People it’s like the hidden game. When you would like to eat you have to go in special room and eat there. The big problem you can simple forget about this rules and get out with a cap of water. I don’t like to think what might have happened if I will go out with the cap of water in the public but I’m sure that this wouldn’t be the end of my live. I try to keep these rules in my mind.

A small story: 2 minutes ago I saw tow Philippine guys in this “special room”. They made the coffee and they’d like to bring it in whose section. The problem is, they can go out with the drinks or food in the public. They joked –“I put the coffee in my trousers pocket”. The solution was the bag. The put the coffee in the bag and went to whose section.

There are a lot of advantages for example: The roads are half full in the evening; you can go on the beach and have fun because just a small number of people are there. The main advantage in my opinion is the work time. In Ramadan, that’s means one months, we have to work from 9am to 3pm.Usually we are working from 8am to 5pm. Strictly speaking I have o lot of private time now. And I must say I like Ramadan because of this point stronger.

I'm guy from Germany who came to Emirate to do your's internship.

It was very long flight about 10 hours. I was very tired when I've arrived the airport of Abu Dhabi, it is capital of Emirates. It was 35 degrees outside(11 pm). Usually we have 20 dergrees in Germany in this part of time. First thought was I'd like go back....;)

After half hour it was a bit better for me. I've got my lagged. I went to the exit. I thought what I have to do now at the moment. It was night and ones of my ideas was to stay at an airport. There were not places for sitting or something else I decided to go to the hotel. Here I would like to suggest something. If you decide to take a taxi in UAE(Emirates) please use only city taxi. There are a lot of people who offers drive service for "special price". Don't believe them, don't repeat my mistakes. I paid twice as much....

The "cheapest hotel" was for 100€ per night. After one night at the hotel I went to find an accommodation. I was lucky, I could find one very fast.

Now I've got one room at the 3 rooms flat. I've got neighbors, India guys. The kitchen, where I cook sometimes......

If you need more information to make your arrive to UAE easier please don't hesitate to contact me.
