Goodbye my dear Lebanon

Dear Lebanon

For more then 6 months, I have been posting to this blog, and most of the comments I received were very encouraging. I thank you for that.
Now, it is time for me to move on. It is time for me to become another statistic, another 24 years old youngster leaving his homeland to ensure a better future.
Yes, even I am leaving. After seeing all my friends leave one after the other to work abroad, it is now my turn to say goodbye.

This is probably the last post I write before leaving to France.
Although I got accepted to the MBA program of the most reputable university in the region with a full assistantship (American University of Beirut aka AUB), I decided to head to Bordeaux in France for a Masters in Supply Chain Management.

I will definitely keep on posting on The Lebanese Code and hopefully more frequently.
Now I am sure there are lots of things I will be missing. But before I reveal it in my first post from France, I would like to know what you think there is to miss about our dear LEBANON.

Please post your entries in the comment section.

GOD BLESS LEBANON ( or what is left of it ) !!!

Dear Sir,

I am an American which has taken an interest in the changes happening in Lebanon. You and your perspective of events will be missed.

I understand your decision to leave, but it is the youth of Lebanon that stands to gain the most from the changes taking place there. It saddens me to think that so many are abandoning such a beautiful land.

I hope you return to Lebanon with your degree, "armed and ready" with knowledge, to continue to build Lebanon into the successful, promising, caring, and world-class country that I know that it is.

Best wishes to you.
John C.

I have enjoyed reading and posting to this blog and will miss you. I wish you the best of luck with your studies in France. I was going to say that you are leaving just before the fireworks (a la Mehlis) start , but there have been periodic fireworks in Lebanon for as long as I remember, And it just might be safer for you to be in France when they do start!

Please do post while you are being an expat; I'd like to hear your impressions of France and your continued comments re Lebanon.
