I have the pleasure to announce you that we have turned the heater off at home 🙂 I went through my old posts, and found that we turned it on on October 17th!! 7 months!! I’m sure that’s a record; 7 months of heater in Lebanon is like 7 months in Hell! This brings in … Continue reading

Have you ever thought about how movies reflect a country’s fears and dreams? One just needs to watch a few movies before going to a country and he can understand how the people in there will behave:P I will give you a few examples. Lebanese movies are all about war, death, destruction, bad memories, etc… … Continue reading
