One of the highlights of the trip so far for me was the opportunity I was given to do the azan before the zuhor prayer yesterday. It was a far more intimidating experience, by the way, than lecturing in front of a big group, or performing on stage. Somehow it felt far more serious with so much at stake, despite the fact I had the most sympathetic of audiences. My hands were shaking throughout, though the Missus claimed I sounded confident. Not sure that that isn't special pleading on her behalf.
