Thank you for your wonderful article. I am 42 years old and have done all my fastings in Europe. When I started with fasting (1982) many of my class mates did not know anything about Islam in general and Ramadan in special. Meanwhile, this has completely changed.
Through all the years I was wondering how fasting would be in Islamic countries and after reading your article I know now, that I haven't missed andything :-)
All the best!!
