KAC 501

.
Flying to Beirut tomorrow and I'm having mixed feelings about this trip with all that's going on over there. I'm going with family (never been there with family before), and I no longer have friends in Beirut.. only acquaintances! Isn't that sad?
Plus, I've been bottling up some unwanted emotions since 2001, and I dread this visit will stir them up and bring them back to surface again.

(No, Mom.. I haven't started packing yet)

Well, I guess I have to face my fears since boycotting Liban is out of the question. It's about time I refresh my Beirutian memory anyways.

I'll pack tomorrow.

Thanks.. I was there from the 23rd till the 27th. I'm not sure how well I know it, but I love what I know :)

Rabab,
My first night there was depressing, I admit.. but the Lebanese have a special way of turning the most horrible events into joy and hope.

Jewaira,
I had a lovely time there.. Thanks :)

Jambino,
I wanted to stay for another day and witness today's demonstrations, but couldn't.

Long Live Lebanon
