Never Seen Aqaba So Quiet

by Katerina

I've been to Aqaba several times and one of our trips happened to fall on Ramadan. We were walking in the downtown in the afternoon and as the sun went down behind the mountains of Sinai, the call for prayer started to echo all over the town.

A minute later we realized that we were completely alone on the street... no people walking, no cars moving... we felt like we were in the middle of a haunted city!

It was very wierd, indeed. I have never ever seen Aqaba so quiet!
