Entry Description

It’s the day after the end of the Muslim fasting festival, and the city quickly regains back its normal pacing. An old lady is sweeping the garbage off the street in the morning; it was from last night’s party. A man is carrying a water mobile engine to work; which is just a few minutes’ walk from the city central, not far from our hotel. A young girl with her friends waits for the sunset at the beach, it was Sunday night, and it’s a school day tomorrow. Everything is back to normal after the festival ends, only the memories and photos of remain.
