Day 43: Fanoos Ramadan

August 18

Ok so you know Christmas lights? In Egypt, during Ramadan, there are Fawanees (plural) Ramadan. Singular: Fanoos. Fanoos = Lantern. It's that thing in the middle of the picture with light coming out of it. They're so pretty and big and colourful and I REALLY want one but haven't gotten my hands on one just yet. And they're everywhere! Hung in the entrances of buildings, apartments, on streetlights, etc. and they come in all sizes. I shall buy one eventually and post a picture of it.
Note: they used to make them all here in Egypt but recently they've all been imported from China.
