Eid Mubarak, Y’all!

Abu Dhabi

September 25, 2015

Dear Reader,

This week, muslims around the world celebrated Eid al Adha, the Feast of the Sacrifice.  It is a commemoration of Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his only son, in obedience to God, and it marks the end of the Hajj (pilgrimage) season.  Since the holiday was observed on Wednesday and Thursday, it meant a long weekend for many of us here in the UAE.  It was wonderful to have some down time to explore my new home and connect with new friends.  I hope you can take time this weekend to recharge and connect with those you love.

Fondly,
Maxima
