A hilarious article reflecting a sad reality in Lebanon [From Mexico to Lebanon].
A couple of weeks ago, there were a lot of bangs in the street for a few days. I didn’t want to panic so I started my little usual inquiry: I checked my e-mail. And indeed, there was a message from my employer saying, “Celebrations for the end of exams are taking place. Celebratory gunfire shouldn’t be discarded. Please remain away from windows.”
I looked at my Lebanese colleague and asked: “What do they mean, celebratory gunfire for the exams? Celebratory as in yay-I-passed-celebratory?”
She smiled at me and said ” Yeeeesss, people are celebrating the Lebanese way.”
The Lebanese Way. This is a concept even trickier than celebratory gunfire. And an endless source of inspiration, I dare say.
