Holidays Part 6

Playing backgammon at the Riviera Beach Club
 
 
I have gone on my annual Trek to the Motherland: I have to replenish my body and soul with energy in order to be able to deal with another year of Lebanon. It is a country of incredible beauty and wonderful people, but the place is a paradox. What you experience in Lebanon in one year, you experience in another country in a life time. The pace of living is so fast, yet so relaxed at the same time, that it drains your energy like no other place. And so I have gone to re-energize.
 
 
In the meantime, I will leave you with a typical Beirut street scene - a different backgammon game - every week. I hope to see you again after the summer holidays.

Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you may still exist, but you have ceased to live. See the link below for more info.
