My first 2 page spread!

Remember that post I wrote, 40 things I’ve learned since moving to Lebanon? Well, because it was so popular with all of YOU, it was featured in this month’s 3D issue of RagMag!  So, a big THANK YOU to all of my readers!


This month's 3D issue of Rag Mag, 3D glasses, and my thumb 🙂

When they told me that my post would be reprinted, I didn’t think that I would have a two page spread, with pictures!


My spread! Isn't it nice?

Naturally, I read the magazine from front to back, well..more like back to front..and what is most striking about this magazine is the breadth of topics it covers.  The people at RagMag are right to call it a “social” magazine.

There truly is something for everyone within the pages of RagMag.  You have features on such varied subjects as fashion, diving, ECON 101 – or lack there of in Lebanese society, Beirut’s underground poetry scene, domestic violence, travel, healthy eating, how to set career goals, the glamorization of cocaine in pop culture, Lebanon’s dying marine life, relationship advice, art (if I had between 10k and 70k to spare I would definitely buy one the photographs in the “One Thousand and One Dreams” photographic series by Marco Guerra and Yasmina Alaoui!!) as well as reviews of CDs, books, DVD’s and even video games..only to name a few.  Not only that, but it is the first social magazine in Lebanon to do a 3D concept..most of the photographs in the magazine only truly come to life when you put on the 3D make sure you put them on!

All of this to say, I’m proud to be featured in this month’s edition of RagMag..go and pick it up, it is definitely worth a read!

    Hey, congrats on the printing! I just found your blog, and really like it. I am from Texas and actually planning on moving to Beirut in July, do you know of any places to begin looking for a job? I was there in July this year and fell in love with it so am just kind of taking the plunge and seeing where it goes since I am graduate from college in December.

      Hey Laura! Well you could look on the best is to ask around..what type of job are you looking for! goooood luck! you won’t regret moving here, it’s amazing! 😀

      • Laura

        Aww thanks for the site , I appreciate it. I’m pretty much looking for anything someone can get with a BA that will pay the bills. I speak Arabic and will speak a little bit of French… but yeah I don’t really know what kinds of jobs are available. I may be going to AUB too to get a masters, but I am just working on the application right now and not sure if I want to do an MA yet or not, so basically just planning on trying to work. Did you have your job before you went? I haven’t backlogged too far yet and figured out exactly how you made it there.
