on the road

"so where are you ladies going to?"

"we're going to the mosque, there's a celebration today"

"what is it called?"

"Eid Mubarak"

"Who is he? someone like Hosni Mubarak?"

"It's not a he. it's a religious event"

"what is it all about? do you eat and drink together?"

"we pray in congregation this morning and eat together later on"

"never heard of such festival"

"have you heard of Islam?"

"no I don't"

"I don't do religions"

"I can't afford God"

"it's too expensive"
