I saw an ad for saveaya.org on the electronic billboard next to Forum de Beyrouth. Aya is a 13 year old girl who needs a liver transplant. The operation costs $50,000.

So i finally went to the Ferrari showroom and what a great delight that visit was!
I was greeted by Marie-Claire who had invited me to come over and started touring the showroom. There were pre-owned cars on display, the Ferrari F430, 599 GTB and the 612 Scaglietti. I honestly haven’t seen a Scaglietti before and i got to see two on the same day, one in the showroom and another for a customer who was kind enough to show us his car.
I then watched an event organized by Ferrari Lebanon in Riyak Air base back in July 2010 where all Lebanese Ferrari car owners were invited to try out their cars and learn how to drift with people from Ferrari Maranello. The event was very exclusive and really cool to watch, wish i had been there to take pictures.
There’s a small corner also in the showroom if you like to buy Ferrari gadgets. I asked Marie-Claire if they had some Michael Schumacher items still, she ironically replied: “Who is Schumacher?”, hinting that he’s no longer part of the Ferrari familia. Also, i was told Ferrari fans and car owners are invited occasionally to come down and watch the Formula1 GPs in the small lounge.
Last but not least, i asked about how could one test-drive a Ferrari and it seems rather impossible unless you are a potential client, which i must say makes sense, but i was still promised a ride whenever there’s a demo car available. Will be looking forward to that!
Thank you Marie-Claire and keep up the great work!
PS: i just played Loto, so let’s hope for the best
