Absolut Beirut

Dear Lebanon

Sleep in the morning, shopping during the day, and drinks in the evening. This has become my ritual during the last 10 days.
Like many, I returned to Lebanon to spend Christmas with family and friends.
I don't really feel like criticizing anyone or anything today, so I'll just keep on exploring until I get an interesting story.

Meanwhile, Enjoy Beirut and its Nightlife.

To Leb and Back

Dear Lebanon

So I came to spend my summer vacation in the motherland... But what a vacation it turned out to be. Although I was supposed to leave before the start of the war, I preferred to spend a few more days in the sun...

Following a small hesitation between hitting the job market or doing some research, I finally chose the latter. I joined INSEAD, an international business school in France to work on humanitarian logistics. I took the plane through Jordan and arrived to Paris in the early hours of the 4th of September.

Now, I am writing from this post, thinking of my new project: Humanitarian Operations in Lebanon. Back to work now...

Hasta luego Lebanon

Lebanon is Finally on the Map

Dear Lebanon

You finally made it on google earth. Although it is not perfect yet, higher definition satellite and arial imagery is now available for you on google earth.
I have an exam tomorrow at 9:00 am and it is already late (1:30 am), but I just couldn't help myself locating the places where I grew up and spent the first 25 years of my life.

Anyway, I should get my ass to bed now, but first I would like to say that I am coming back for vacation in 10 days, so get ready for some new posts.

Meanwhile, I found this weird image of the Zouk area, where some water (I hope not chemicals) is being dropped in the sea and causing a strange pattern in the water all the way to Samaya and Solemar in Kaslik. Have a look below !!!

Foreign review of Lebanese Movie: Bosta

Dear Lebanon

In my continuous search for articles about Lebanese people and Lebanon over the internet, I found this article about the Lebanese box office hit: BOSTA

Rory McCarthy wrote "Dancers' tale proves big hit in Lebanon" in the Guardian Unlimited British newspaper.

Anjar, one year later...

Dear Lebanon,

I am extremely busy these days studying, reading and working on projects for my studies. I hope I can start blogging again starting next month.
Although I am away, news updates about Lebanon are the first thing I check every morning.

Anyway, here is an article published by the BBC about Anjar.
It is an article by Sebastian Usher who visited the ex-syrian stronghold 1 year after their departure.
