THE HOLIEST MONTH

The “Delicious Ramadan Special” advertised in Arabic on the poster plastered across the windows of the Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet sounds like a good, greasy deal. Two pieces of the Colonels best, two “Crispy Strips,” rice, potato or bean salad, bread, dessert, and quamar el-deen, a traditional apricot drink, for the equivalent of just $5.50 Canadian.

A giant, red, papiermaché Chinese dragon with large white teeth dangled from the ceiling. A multicoloured, life-size replica of the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity, Lakshmi, hung from the wall.
