The Saga, Part II

And they responded!!! Ah, yes, the Dutch responded to the request of the Lebanese Ministry of Education within 5 hours on one working day. ONE WORKING DAY! It took the Lebanese some 325 working days, and the Dutch did it in 1!

I’m afraid that’s a 1-0 for the Dutch. And to express my happiness, I leave you, for a change, with something from my original hometown; Utrecht. Enjoy! Tomorrow we’ll go back to our regular programming; Beirut.

This looks really cool! I'm hoping the catch is that it was filmed on one of the few days the weather was that nice in Utrecht. Otherwise I have to say.. why would anyone leave ? :P

PS: Congrats for the end of the whole saga with the ministry of higher education, I can't say I saw it coming, but I certainly didn't expect things on the dutch side to take longer than in Lebanon. Cheers !

You seem surprised that it took the Lebanese 300++ days to send the email...?

I mean, this from a country that does not yet have electricity.

Anyway, at least you saved LL20,000 in bribes!!
