Life during Ramadan

When you live in a country as Kuwait, you have to be prepared to live with the religion. Obviously, there are the pray calls and all the Muslim days that you are not used to in your country, but for me the biggest shock is always during Ramadan. This year, the holy month was during summer. How can we live when it’s 50 degrees outside and to eat and to drink are liable to a fine… even a few days in jail ?
