Why no school? Ramadan? They close for the whole month? Schools in Lebanon don't do that - obviously not everyone in Lebanon is Muslim, but even then, I don't think private schools in predominantly Muslim areas do that either. Interesting.

Ohhhhhh! I forgot about that...

No, I don't live in Lebanon right now... I used to. Moving back soon though.

I remember when Hafez Assad died, Lebanon was in mourning.

Cute. hehe. I like hearing Brits speak Arabic lol. Not something you see every day.

No, not really, but surprisingly never ended up with one, because my family moved to Lebanon soon after I was born. And I never figured I'd be able to claim it after having spent all my life outside of the UK.
