Mecca Mob Scene

The Ceeb has a photo gallery of this year's Hajj festivities. I get panicky and claustophobic just looking at the crush of thousands upon thousands of people who blend together into a pointillistic background (the effacing/subsuming of the individual into the larger whole/ummah being rather the point of the exercise). The Ceeb, being the Ceeb, is awfully reverential about it all, but I have to say that photo #14 gave me a good chuckle.
