yazkam

Written by Yazeed Kamaldien

The Cape’s Muslim history and culture will be the focus of a Heritage Day tour next week when the national holiday coincides with Eid ul-Adha, an annual Islamic festival.

Eid ul-Adha marks the pilgrimage that Muslims are obliged to make to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, at least once in a lifetime if they are by the financial and physical means.

And every year on September 24, which marks national Heritage Day, locals are encouraged to learn about each other’s cultures.

Stormy Point Sublime

dawn2dawn photography

Point Sublime,  on the North Rim of The Grand Canyon offers one great vista of the canyon and surrounding area. The storm cell images are those that ravaged Southern Utah on Monday causing death and destruction. As I experienced, these cells roll very fast over the landscape and you better be prepared to take cover. I had my vehicle close by and felt secure. With all the monsoonal moisture we have experienced this summer, the depths of The Grand Canyon have really greened up.

Add the chicken and stir for a few minutes.  Add the rest of the coconut milk, fish sauce and sugar and simmer for another 5 minutes.  Lastly add the ginger, lime juice and zest and the fresh coriander leaves.  Stir through and serve (with YUM-smile) immediately with fragrant Thai rice.
