Ramadan Karem

dear brothers, family, friemds, bloggers, readers , and all the muslim in the world, RAMADAN MUBAREK
for the first time in my life, me with my parent in one side, and my brothers with the rest of the family on the other side, fast on different schedules.
Ramadan started in Libya, but not here in my area in the united states, I know it always happen all around the islamic world, but it has different impact when it touch you closely on your close family level, it feel strange and weird, when I took my breakfast on the morning today, I felt as if I am commiting a sin !!!
the picture show the islamic center in our area.
finding this center has a short story, when we landed here I tried to look for some Masjed in the neighborhood, of course by using the help of my best friend here the internet, more specificlly, google map, and it gave me some adresses and the right buses to take me there, I registered some notes and started looking with my father for some of these adresses, and unfortunately, the google map let me down this time, when I tried the first nearest two addrsses, the Masjed wasn't there, one of them was actually a church ( although I write a mosque or islamic center in my research ), and the other was very small, unidentified unclean masjed, that was a little depressing.
As I told you before I used the google map from the first few days, to look for everything, and succeded to reach all the places, coz there is good public transportation in this city, with buses you can reach where ever you want.
Till today I didn't use Taxi at all, and didn't get lost, not yet, sure it will happen , but not yet.
back to my point, with google map, and the use of bus when it is needed, I reached the grocery store, the bank, the university, and nearly every where from the first try, but to the Masjed, I failed in my first try, but then I contacted a cyber friend (KA ) here in the state, and he was kind enough to direct me to this islamic center which appear in the picture (which was taken by my mobile cam), and so my second try was successful, and we found ourselves in one of the biggest islamic center in the area , I felt so proud to see this clear islamic symbol on this land, thank you KA.
that was in my first 10 days, then when I started school, I met some Libyan student, and discovered another islamic center, which will be more near to our new place, which we will move to by the middle of September.
That was my story, for ramadan first, till next time, take care, and
Ramadan Karem

You will do fine in the city you are in as it is one the most beautiful cities in USA, a blogger lives in your city, she might be able to help if you contacted her.

Go to Borders or Barnes & Noble bookstores, go to Travel section get this Travel Guide of your city it costs $10 plus Taxes "Thats cheap" as I buy one every time I visit a city in USA and very informative, plus it light & small.

When you are using google map to find a place, try to use the Street View, you can drive around your city by using the Street View, you will be amazed, you find yourself as if you are driving in a car.

Buy your local newspaper so that you know your city, plus there are many free weekly magazines.

Good Luck in your new environment.

Ramadan Mubarak and I hope you and your parents find it easy inshaAllah.

I forgot to tell you, the public transport service will usually have an online travel planner.
Just go to their website and you should find it there.
It will tell you what bus stop to ride from and what bus to take and how long the trip takes and all you have to do is enter your street and the street destination you're going to.

Here is an example of one in London :

It's on the right hand side of the webpage. Ask for the website of your local public transport agency.

عزيزتي الغالية كل رمضان وانتي سالمه يارب والله وليك وحشه يابنتي لما تخشي اون لاين نبدي كيف غالبني النوم وبنرقد الله غالب...
ماتنسيش توصل تهئنتي برمضان للوالد وللوالده
وفكريها امك قوليلها صاحبتي الي كانت تخدم ف الروضة تسلم عليك وتقولك كل رمضان وانتي بألف خير وعافية يارب

كويس انك التقيتي بلليبين جايين يقروا اهو نوع من الاحساس باللاغربه

Have not been commenting for a while, but I'm sure to be entertained and enlightened when I pass by your blog. The sincerity that flows from it is overwhelming. No wonder God is on your side inshallah. Good luck in this new phase of your life and make the most of it. If so far you have only secured a language course acceptance work on the academic one early on. You're a smart girl if from the first 10 days you were able to do this and find all the important place + use the local transport. Bravo sweetie! Congratulations on the studies and Ramadan Mubarak to you and your family. and ....keep us updated by blogging.
