The call to prayer wakes me. I love the call to prayer in its haunting beauty. My Western ears no longer let me sleep through the 4:20 am muezzin’s chant as they once did when I lived in Istanbul. Now the birds are singing, and they are telling me, “Sleep no more.” It’s quite a chorus outside my window.
Today I visit students at Qatar Academy. Very exciting!
I’m so lucky to be visiting my friends, Kevin, Janice, Livvy and Zach (and their cat Spiral). Poor Geoff and Desi – stuck at home.
