The Bells, the bells

I am almost nostalgic for the call to prayer regular din as opposed to the church bells in my new village

Fair enough they only ring out from 7am to midnight but at a total of around 120 clangs a day it does get bloody annoying esp as it's only about 30m away!!!

Still got used to the mosque so hopefully soon I won't notice this!!!

Re: The Bells, the bells

Hey Quazzimodo... growing up at home there was a church down the street that had bell chiming every quarter hour and on the hour 24/7 .
Visitors to our house never slept and usually never came back !but growing up I never noticed it..
So give it some time and you will get used to it ...just don't get the hump !

Re: The Bells, the bells

Right get a load of this

It chimes once for the 1/4, 2 for half, 3 for 1/4 to then 4 times before counting out the hour

BUT here's the kicker-because of a local superstition whereby they " want to confuse the devil of the actual time"- on each hour after it counts out its chimes-it repeats the process 1 min later in order to " confundir el diablo"

So for example at 10 am and pm we get 4 to announce it's a full hour, then 10 to show its ten-then a further ten to confuse old Nick
