16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Kids exploring the Grand Mosque

My husband and I were visiting the Grand Mosque in our recent travels to the UAE. The temperature was 105 Fahrenheit during Ramadan and we were walking through with our kids. We thought it portrayed the beauty of kids openness to other cultures and religions. Our friends who were hosting us practice Islam and we were so impressed by their graciousness in the heat without being able to eat or drink.
