Please excuse my long hiatus! I stupidly left my camera charger in America, but it arrived in the mail just in time for Eid Kbir, or Eid al-Adha — “the big Holiday” or “the Holiday of the Feast.” In commemoration of Abraham nearly sacrificing his son to God (in the Muslim faith, it was Ishmael, not Isaac, who was almost sacrificed), Muslim families slaughter a ram (or goat or cow, in some cases) on this holiday. This little guy looked suitably terrified 😦
