One night in Exarcheia - Ouej in Athens-

Welcome back,

"Is everything okay? I heard there are some problems in Athens." asked my worried father in the phone.
"I guess, everything is .. pretty calm down here" I said as I glanced down the Acropolis negheiborhood from my balcony looking for approval from old ladies walking their dogs and colourful buses loaded of tourists.
Nothing new.
Nothing exciting.

I just had greek coffee and I was bored and hyped.
I starting randomly watching the news with my flatmates when I noticed at the bottom of the screen a writing in english "Riots in Exarcheia"

My Beirut Experience Part II

Welcome back,

The night life is Beirut was ... something. It is safe to say that Lebanese people know how to party.They have a joie-de-vivre no matter what the circumstances. Yet, Lebanon is not only Beirut. Coming from a bigger country in comparison with lebanon, it astonished me how easily you could travel to other cities.

As I wrote before, I was in Beirut during January.
With a team of international students, we did a documentary about the 17,000 disappeared of the civil war in Lebanon.

With love,
