Or at least that’s what they say!
Remember when I took some space from Beirut not even two months ago? Well, as it turns out..ten days wasn’t enough..
So as of 4:45 am Friday morning, I will be en-route back to Miami for two and a half months of pure rest and relaxation..(and maybe a little fun! ;))
Don’t get me wrong,,this past year and a half has been amazing..it really has. But you all understand when I say that I’m a bit exhausted, right? Beirut does that to you somehow..I just need to go home for a bit and recharge my batteries. Come late August I will be back in Beirut..fresh and like new!
But not to worry! I fully intend on keeping this blog alive and well during the next few months. I’ll still be blogging about Beirut and Lebanon in general..but with a few posts about Miami, Trinidad, and Montreal (all places that I will be this summer) mixed in. I hope you don’t mind!
But before I go..I want to share with you something significant that happened to me yesterday.
I said goodbye to my charming Hamra apartment..the place that I’ve called home for the past year. And to commemorate it, I took a couple of pictures so that you could see where I’ve been living!
There are definitely some things I will miss..like the proximity to everything..and some things I won’t..like the construction site right outside of my window!
As I was packing up all of my stuff, I couldn’t help but feel like a chapter of my life was over.
..But you will be happy to know that I’ve already secured an apartment for when I return..
but this time..
..in GEMMAYZEH! That’s right! I’m getting out of Hamra to explore other parts of this enchanting city. Be proud..be very proud.
Anyhow, here’s to hoping that everyone has a fantastic summer..whether you’re spending it in Beirut or abroad. See you in a few months!
