keagan is due to return any day now from his hajj to mecca. he was lucky enough to get any oppurtunity to make the pilgrimage due to generous benefactors. He spent time in mecca, medina and qatar. from what i hear, the sheer number of people there is just mind-boggling (check the photo below). also, we did worry about him when we heard about the 350 people who were trampled to death in mecca last week, but he was not in the area at the time. actually, the stampede occurred at a sorta side function that involves throwing stones at pillars representing the devil... not actually part of the main pilgrimage.
