Emirates — the Muslim country where strictly observe traditions. In sacred month Ramadan locals have to observe a strict post: not to eat and not to drink during daylight hours.
In the UAE all should follow these rules — no matter of their religion. Food is prohibited in public places, otherwise you can be charged $550 or put in prison for a period of up to one month.
Everything is really serious: recently for juice drink in the public place during daylight hours on a dock the Russian has got into prison. She has explained to court that she isn’t a Muslim therefore was aware not of the standard rules. The court has considered it thats why the woman has got out of prison «only» after she has payed $278!
