They let us out

Today they finally lifted the curfew for the whole day, and there was enough time and freedom of movement for stores to be opened and shelves to be stocked.

People and traffic were finally on the roads again.
It was also the first day of Ramadan. So people were anxious to have something nice to eat for Iftyar, when they broke the fast. The streets and stores were crowded.
But the restaurant we waited in was not crowded. It was empty since everyone was fasting. The two pizza-baking men didn't have much to do.
Look! Is that Best Buy? Oh no. Their best buys are something to do with "beauty to bow from tips to toe". ?
One of the check points we passed through. But this is a usual one, not one of those recently added.
