During Ramadhan, Muslims fast from sunup to sundown for about 30 days.  During the day, restaurants that are open have curtains so people fasting don’t have to see anyone eating or drinking.

At the hotel in Jogja in celebration of Ramadhan is this Bedug (drum) made of butter.  (DeeAnn is pointing, not touching, because the sign says ‘don’t touch’!)  Before there were loudspeakers announcing the call to prayer, the Bedug was used.  Now it is mostly ceremonial.  Why it’s made out of butter, I have no idea….
