Lebanon

In Beirut

Well, Air France lost my luggage. My video monitor on the plane was busted, so I ended up reading Geoff Dyer’s new novel Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi in one sitting. It’s so hot here that my annual ritual of going skiing and swimming in one day is not going to be an option. The traffic is bad and is bound to get worse when it starts pouring this week.

But I’m not complaining. Do you know why?

  1. Welcome home! Nawwarat Beirut bi wjudak.
    And that’s a very good fotograph of a food that’s allways very good too. Got us all droooling…

    On a different note, I found today’s edition of e-Haaretz quite yummy too. Barak to Turkey, Iraqi Jewish Archive, U.S. official suggesting that “arming of Hezbollah could spark Israel-Syria war” (Israel-Syria war? Really?)and last by not least, somebody remembering that Marwan Barghouti is still alive…
