Found this by mistake awhile ago and it turns out it took place in Lebanon. Pretty cool. [YouTube]
A woman from Lebanon brought zatar with her which is prohibited in Australia. Her son in law who has lived in Australia for 25 years is determined to bring the food whith him because it’s a typical Lebanon delicacy.
This guy REALLY wants his zaatar! [YouTube]
I thought the Lebanese flag was our flag. I really hate it when politics are mixed with sports. Now this guy will probably be kicked out of every competition even though he seems talented.

I wish all stories end the way this one did. The victim was unhurt and the criminal caught. More importantly, people did not overreact and kill the man but waited for the cops to come. If only Myriam was that lucky!
Make sure you check the comments at 0:48 and 1:11.
This just happened on MTV few minutes ago. Can’t believe they did this on the air.
BlogBaladi took part in the report BBC did on the internet in Lebanon as I was interviewed by Howard Johnson on that matter few weeks back. Surprisingly though, they did not include anything I said but simply showed me browsing the net at the start of the report. Di3an kel hal 7ake!
For those interested, I talked about most of the issues the other interviewees mentioned but also noted that the cap given to internet users is very low, that our infrastructure might not be able to handle increasing numbers of internet users specially after the drop in prices and the speed upgrades, and that both issues could prove very problematic in the near future.
Looks like it wasn’t all work and no play for Richard Quest. CNN just aired a segment on the Beirut Night Life scene covered by Richard Quest. Pretty cool. [YouTube]
Not sure if this is related to 3G or an upgrade in our DSL speeds. [YouTube]
