Did you miss me? I know I missed you 🙂 We’ve been in Lebanon for almost one week now, and we’ve already put on our Lebanese masks back, or should I say, we already removed our French masks. We’re back to being lousy drivers again, back to breaking rules, back to not caring about the … Continue reading

Another diner out and another semi-fight with a waiter… Far you are the nice waiter that introduces himself before he says hello. Far you are the waiter that comes every 2 seconds to make sure that everything is ok and everybody around the table is still happy. Far you are the waiter that accepts the … Continue reading

We have finished our Christmas shopping today; we’re ready to fly home now 🙂 Actually we haven’t quite finished yet, we were so busy getting everybody else’s presents that we didn’t get time to think of ourselves.

There’s a known fact in Lebanon: December is both the worst and the best month of the year. It’s the best because of the holidays at the end, all the decorations on the streets, the happy kids, and the joyful spirit all around. It’s also the worst because of all the traffic… Too much cars … Continue reading

We went to Lille this afternoon to check the Christmas fair. It wasn’t that bad; definitely better than the Braderie they do in September. The down side in my opinion is that there wasn’t enough kids, even though there are a lot of activities and fun stuff for them to do. But I guess parents … Continue reading

You know what’s the advantage of working for a country and living in a different one? You can be on holiday while the others are all at work; so you can start your Christmas shopping at ease without the rush of the stores on Saturday 🙂 Today is the Independence Day in Lebanon, I celebrated … Continue reading

Have you noticed the new layout? What do you think? Nice or not? Shall I change it back to the old one? Or is this one better? Your comments are more than welcome 🙂 In France also they’re changing the layout: they have started the Christmas decorations. Let’s talk about Christmas in France for a … Continue reading
