I was going to go to the beach this morning..that was until my friend sent me this picture of Beirut from her house in Hazmieh..
I can’t believe I’m breathing this in! How disgusting!
I’m getting out of Beirut! I’ve decided that if I stay in Lebanon another year or two, I will be moving to Jounieh! I can’t stand the thought of breathing this in!

Went to my friend’s house in Hazmieh yesterday. We had just opened the windows to let some fresh air into her room, when her Mom rushed in and told us to shut them right away, as they were spraying insecticide outside.
“They just do that without warning?” I asked?
“Yeah.” She replied..
Insecticide is toxic! How can they just go about spraying such massive quantities without any warming? When you spray your home for insects, you are told not to vacate the premises for hours, if not an entire day..and the amount of insecticide sprayed in your home, doesn’t even come close to the amount I saw yesterday.
This was the scene outside her window..one massive cloud of insecticide.
Just charming, isn't it?
As if the pollution isn’t worrying enough..It makes me cringe to think of all of the toxic things I’m breathing in..Why Lebanon, WHY!
