Reply To: Business travel during Ramadan

@DNAdams – you know one of the great things about life is the choices we are given. Just because you remove the choice of beef, pork, prawn, lobster – how many other choices are there… Are you a person that needs ALL the choices at any one time, or can you get excited by a choice of say 3 types of foods.

In my very respectful world, yes showing respect by dressing respectfully is the same thing. I would not go to a black tie event & complain about the lack of clothing choice.

I don’t think religion is actually the problem – the problem is people not wishing to respect other cultures, traditions and sensitivities – and – I am Jewish and when invited to visit Saudia was asked in advance whether I required kosher food… (I incidentally declined and accepted a vegetarian diet)…
