Spring has finally started, Lois is in town (from Korea), so we walked around a bit. Here some scenes in Beirut.
HANA AND TINKERBELL DOWNTOWN
WE ARE NOT ARABS
I saw this one downtown. I was out some time ago with a friend of my son’s, and we were at a place where there were just too many people. So the boy said: “Can we leave, there’s just too many Arabs here.” Now this boy is 100% Lebanese, both parents are Lebanese and Arabic speaking. “I’m an Arab too,” said Adrian. “I’m not, I am Franco-Libanais,” the boy replied. Seems like he picked up a French passport somewhere. I was pretty stunned, but this way of thinking is pretty prevalent here among some groups.
