That’s the first time I hear about this, but apparently it’s a common practice in some Lebanese restaurants and houses to put water bags to keep flies away from their food.
I made a quick search and surprisingly it’s a common practice everywhere in the world. Opinions however are split on whether this really works or not. [Link]
As far as I am concerned, there were no flies to be seen in Al Erzel in Faraya where I was on Saturday, but it could be because of the weather.
First time you hear about it? Really??
OOh heard of it many times before,many restaurants bel jabal do this and seems to work just fine though it’s very debatable :p
