Well in Lebanon the plane trip was annoying. It has been a while since I flown Kuwait Airways and remembered why after this. Luckily I am returning via MEA so will avoid this mess.

Strange thing about this trip I am not brining my MP3 player. I was contimplating it when I was packing and decided against it. Not sure what to put on it and really didn’t think I will be listening to it at all.

Books:

  • Jennifer Government: Pretty cool book, here reminds me of Snow Crash but has this tinge to it that I am enjoying.
  • Counter-BlastI got this at the last second McLauhan is a visionary in terms of ways of communication where it is headed. I been thinking a lot of the future of communication and interaction lately ao wanted to catch up on his writings to get a better perspective of it all.
  • Vintage Maurakami I got this book ages ago but just haven’t had time to start reading it, buy or will start the first page and just put it down. I started reading one of the stories on the plane and really dove deep in his writings. Their is some rich imagery and feelings. This will be a real joy in reading.

The only electronic thing I am carrying with me is my phone and my bluetooth keyboard to write with. I rarely use it but its good to have when I need it. I much rather write in my trusty yellow notepad that I always carry with me. Like a camera. I decided to take my Minolta on this trip easy simple camer and a nice lens. The only problem is that I dont have any film! I went to the airport duty free and they dont keep any more regular film! It is a travesty! I hope to pick some up from the hotel bookstore thing tomorrow morning.

I really want to take pictures of Lebanon. It look so scenic when we were landing that I want to see more of it. Tomorrow we are going to the mountains so that will be exciting and want to get some pictures there, but really want to get a feel for the city and the mix of old and new.

Just got done with some great sking. It really feels great to be back on the slopes again. We got an instructor to guide us for the mountains and well he been teaching us some great stuff. I haven’t have an someone to teach me to ski in a while, symptoms and haven’t skied in over a year so it was very helpful. It was all about flow and well letting your skis take over and move you, approved instead of you forcing to move them. It took a while for me to get mind wrapped around the idea of just letting go.
It took the whole day but by the end I had it down. I was carving down the mountain in full speed with just slight tilt of the knee to the left and right for movement. It felt great just to speed down and move. I just love that feeling. That flow of the whole body moving in a rythem. No thought, just body and flow it is a wonderful feeling just to relax for it and feel that heat in your body and the cold wind on your face.
Tonight to Beirut and burn up downtown. Aiming for that Dunkin Donuts experience I keep hearing about

Had a great night out in Beirut, buy more about just no time to post about it. So the rumors of my return are false. I got picked up by my friend and headed down to the CV for some dinner and a good time. I really enjoy driving around the city and even walking in it just the mix of shapes and colors in the buildings and the feeling of life you get from them really wonderful. This feeling also exists in the inside of these buildings.
We headed to Mono [sp?] street and found some hole in the wall pub an djust hanged out for a while. It is really great to have one street just dedicated to the pubs and such, ailment makes it easier to find friends and other places to go when one is full or just not the right feeling. While at the pub some old friends came and also met some new ones. It was one fun time trading stories and singing a long to the music and recounting history. Also I got to experience the famous Lebanese dancing on the bar ritual. The song was Time goes by – Madonna and since I am sucker for peer pressure I hopped on their with my friend and just went at it. I also would like to take this time to thank all the strippers I’ve seen in action for teaching me how to pole dance. I really couldn’t have done it without them.
After that we decided it was time to go dancing! So we headed out ot BO18, unhealthy which is spectacular. I also always heard of this place and their roof and to get to see it and with the roof open was really great. We had a great time there just dancing the rest of the night away. I was in a different state, just with my circle of new and old friends and that was my world. The rest of the club really didn’t exist We were just having such a good time.
I dont remember when I got back home since I didn’t have to drive up that mountain road, I was just out of it. I was so tired and slept all the way up and sleep walked to my hotel room. I was just gone. All I recall is that as soon as I hit the bed my brother started this broken record telling me to wake up. Out of spite I stayed in bed. I really needed to go to the bathroom but didn’t move out of the bed. If it is war he wanted, war he got.
That was a quiet day, saw friends up in the slopes and had a really good grease bomb of a burger.
Today in Beirut and wandered around the Solidare, really need to get lost here. I love getting lost in a city and just taking pictures and observing the people and how they integrate with the architecture. You get such a wonderufl feel for the place that way. You understand it better. The reaon for the people’s actions and if that is based on the souroundings, or that that souroundings affect the people.
One cool thing for Lebanon history is I saw the “Prophet and Gibran” play.
More exploring tonight and tomorrow. Friend recommended this place called Basement and that seems to be chill to hang out and take it easy.

  1. So are you returned or are you not returned?

    As for the pole dancers, we know who your teacher is :P

  2. if you want to go exploring and get lost i recommend you go to Bourj Hammoud or Achrafieh. CV is too tiny and “new”.

  3. You resisted the urge to pee when you got home? Wow. That takes superpowers… especially after a night out like that!! Whoa. My bladder hurts just thinking about it.

  4. am glad u enjoyed it dear!
    it does feel gr8 when the rest of the club doesnt exist… i think its proof that ur happy and having fun with those around u!
