Today we visited the Islamic center. It was in Wan Chai, but we took a bus to get there. When we got there, we had to wait for a bit, but then we got to go up six floors to a classroom where we met our speaker, Imam Yang.

Some interesting things I found out were:

* Islam means peace
* You can not eat pork, and you can not have alchohol (sorry, I'm still in food mode from my essay:)
* They also have fasting, on the ninth month of the Islam Lunar calender (STILL thinking of food!)
* There are 28 letters in the alphabet
* Women have to have their hair covered, but men don't, unlike the Sikh religion, where men and women both have to have their hair covered.

Thanks for reading, and please comment!
