Break the fast, eat fast!

On the flight from Jakarta to Balikpapan yesterday afternoon, the boxed meals were handed out.  Most of them sat untouched for close to 40 minutes as the passengers patiently waited until it was time to break the fast.

18:25: “The time is now 6:25 p.m. For those of you fasting for Ramhadan, it is now time to break the fast.”

Boxes opened, savoring of food begins…

18:27: “We are beginning our final descent into Balikpapan.  Make sure your seat backs are upright and your tray tables are stowed.”
