Ramadan 2014 ends

It's likely that Eid will start tonight, though it could be tomorrow depending on the sighting of the Moon. Surprisingly it's cloudy today, a real rarity in the Doha summer, so I don't think anyone here will be spotting anything. They will probably have to rely on sightings from Saudi Arabia to determine if Eid starts tonight or not.

But I'm leaving on vacation tonight so the timing of Eid doesn't matter too much to me. I've heard the airport has been very busy (it's one of the busiest travel times) but dohanews reported that by-and-large things have been going smoothly in the new airport. That's good to hear but I'm getting there early anyway.
