Exactly 30 days! This is how long we’re staying here. So much to plan, so much to do before we leave, panic and stage fright has started mounting, but behind this we’re just happy to be going home. We’re going to Paris this week end, going to visit the capital for the last time before … Continue reading

While we were running to catch our train to Lille last night, the station, “Gare du Nord”, was full with journalists and security guards, all the passengers had cameras and were taking pictures of the person surrounded by this crowd. Of course we were busy looking for our train so we couldn’t stop and look who … 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

We just came from Paris. This time we went by car, so we’re more tired than usually. The road is not that long, but when you’re driving it’s different that when you’re sitting comfortably in a train reading a book or looking at the landscape. I drove on our way there; this was an experience … Continue reading

What a sprint we did tonight to catch the train! We almost threw up the crepes we had for diner. This will teach us not to be greedy and have 2 crepes instead of 1 (how could we skip the Nutella chocolate one?) Actually the whole week end was a sprint. On Saturday we were … Continue reading
