No. 0887 No Bedtime

Well, depending on one's position, the "no bedtime" rule (or non-rule) in Egypt could be definitely un-fabulous. However, for children, who are free to stay up all night long - especially during the month of Ramadan - I am sure they consider it Fabulous. Literally, there is no bedtime here. I have seen kids out playing in the garden behind our home in summer months after 3am. I guess it makes sense in a country so hot, that you stay awake during the night and have long naps during the day, (though I'm not sure how those kids fare when they go to school...? Maybe the school hours should be updated to reflect the heat as well..."night school for tots"? Maybe...)
