Here in Turkey, the Muslim time of fasting is called Ramazan instead of Ramadan. The concept is much the same though. You fast from sunrise to sunset and then eat etc after the sun goes down. One thing that I notice that is different here in Ankara is that not everyone fasts. In Oman, pretty much all Omanis were fasting. Here, it's not quite like that. Just goes to show that you can't lump all people of a particular religion into a box. It's good to learn that lesson time and again!
