Ramadan Quiet in Riyadh


It's 6.20 p.m. and the usual hustle and bustle behind the hospital on King Fahad is non-existent. The Riyadh roads are almost empty. Nurses who, having finished their shift, are trudging to waiting buses are the only people about, save one expat Kiwi woman who's decided to walk home from the office.  The only cars are taxi drivers hunting for a fare in the quiet of Ramadan just before Iftar, cruising the street looking expectantly at the lone pedestrian, moving on slowly when ignored.

It's an eerie quiet.
Like a city on hold.
The quiet of Riyadh in Ramadan.
