It’s been one week since the beginning of Ramadan – the month of fasting for Muslims worldwide. Almost without exception, Yemenis over the age of 14 or 15 abstain from food and drink from dawn till dusk.

Towards the end of the video, you’ll hear the call to prayer – which is the signal that it’s time to eat.
In the second video, you’ll get a glimpse of what the streets of Sana’a look like at 9am during Ramadan.
