TO GO WITH AFP STORY "Lebanon-social-religion-Ramadan" FEATURE by Mohamad Ali Harissi A picture taken on August 17, 2010 shows a dancer performing the traditional sufi whirling dervishes dance as customers have their "suhur" meal just before daybreak, which marks the start of the daylong fast, at a restaurant in a Beirut hotel, as Muslims around the world fast from food and water between dawn and sunset during the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. Though traditionally a time of frugality and prayer, the month of Ramadan has become an occasion for extravagant spending on everything from lavish evening meals to crystal bowls to cosmetic surgery in Lebanon, a country famed for its "see and be seen" attitude.
