First day of the Baha'i fast today. Went better than the usual first day (surprised). For those not familiar, this fasting means not eating or drinking from sunrise to sunset (similar to the Muslim Ramadan). The Baha'is in this part of Niamey (as elsewhere) marked last night the end of Ayyam-i-Ha - the intercalary days corresponding with the end of February - and the beginning of the 19 day month of fasting.

After a hot spell over Ayyam-i-Ha, the sky was very dusty and the temp more moderate today. Hot season is on its way though.
