    The 4th day of Hajj

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     monahaydar shot this video on Nov. 8, the fourth day of Hajj, of Muslims circling the Kaaba. She says, 'I didn't know my little eye could behold this many people. Being in the crowd is like swimming, but in a sea of people. Sometimes the current picks you up. Sometimes you feel like you're drowning. Sometimes you have to swim against the current. And sometimes the current takes you with her sweetly, to the place you want to go.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer
