Photo of the Week: July 27th

This week's photo highlights the holy month of Ramadan. Muslims all around the world are fasting and devoting their time to prayer and the study of scripture. This is the scene in front of a mosque in Стара Чаршија or Çarshia e Vjetër (old bazaar, in Macedonian and Albanian respectively).

Prayers are held regularly and on normal days the walls of the mosque are usually sufficient for the followers in attendance but on Fridays the crowds swell into the streets.
