Brazil, Egypt: The first day of Ramadan

Barbrinha [pt], a Brazilian blogger living in Egypt, is writing a Ramadan diary. On fasting for non-muslin people, she says: “I fasted several times before I was converted, and it has always been my purpose to God, it was me and him and nobody else, I won't write here what religion says, cos I think pleasing God doesn't need to be written in any book, it has to be in your heart, your good attitudes towards the world, this is to please God.
