Write a piece about a typically “local” experience from where you come nas though it’s an entry in a travel guide.

I will describe a street in Dhaka at the time of Ramadan. It is the time when Muslims fast from dawn to sunset.During this time the people gather together and prepare different types of food for the public to buy for Iftar ( time the people are allowed to eat and drink water and other beverages).

The buying and selling starts before sunset, after sunset the people open their fast with a few dates and a sweet drink prepared with sugar, water and lemon juice. Then they offer the Maghrib prayer (Which is after sunset). After the prayer they eat some of the foods they buy at the market.

Here is a youtube video showing the street scene on a typical Ramadan day.
