    Call to prayer woke me this morning some time around 4:36 a.m.  I didn't mind it as it's nice to hear and usually I had no problem falling asleep again.   Obviously there are plenty of mosques around so as I am listening, I could identify about 4 to 6 voices doing the call.  Are people really up at that time too and going to the mosque?  Maybe you have to do that because of the heat here.  I do know that everything says there is an afternoon "siesta" period when all the shops close then open again later in the afternoon.  I'll find that out today.
    I was drifting back to sleep when another call to prayer rang out.  I thought at first maybe I had fallen asleep and it was a later time but no, checked the clock and it was maybe 5 minutes after all the others had stopped.  How odd to me.  I can get that the mosques don't start on the dot together, that's just logical human starting times.  But why was one a full 5- 10 minutes later?  Another human error?  They didn't get to the mosque on time?
