30 mosques in 30 days


What do a Las Vegas casino manager, a Cambodian refugee, a Hurricane  
Katrina hero and a champion Georgian girls basketball team all have  
in common?

They are all American - and they are all Muslim.

This Ramadan, two New Yorkers have been on a mission: To show  
Americans and the world the different faces of the US heartland.

Stand-up comedian Aman Ali and filmmaker Bassam Tariq drove across  
the US to visit 30 mosques in 30 states over the 30 days of the holy  
month of Ramadan, a time of fasting and spiritual purification for  
Muslims. It is a journey that covered 12,000 miles. And they have  
been blogging throughout.

Tens of thousands of people from more than 20 countries, including  
Luxembourg, Panama and Vietnam, have been following the 30 mosques blog.
