L is for Lanterns

Yes, another lantern post – to celebrate the first day of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. These lanterns were on sale on Road 9 in Ma’adi, a city south of Cairo. Interested in learning more about these colorful lanterns? Read Saudi Aramco’s article Ramadan’s Lanterns to learn about the history of lanterns in Egypt (or read my book, of course). And Ramadan Kareem, everyone!
