Briefly in the elevator










The guy managed to tell me his autobiography from the ground to the 14th floor. It was interesting and I felt it’s really a Lebanese superpower to be able to converse deeply with anyone you face, in any situation, at any time!

Today’s song is Tarzan Boy’s Baltimore. This tune is full of positivity! Have a great day/weekend my darlings! 🙂

    well i still like those small talks between lebanese, they may be awkward, but it gives our society a less “strangers living together in a box ” feeling

    same with taxis i guess also 😉

    hey maya:D
    nice insight:D
    Your amalgam reminds me of the comic book i did about the lebanese pizza delivery guy and the different situations he goes through daily. Don’t know if your remember it back when we were with Nadim:D I looked at it again the other day after reading your blog:P
    Thanks for bringing the good old memories back:D
    Keep it up!
