  • Artified and back in Utah

    Artified and back in Utah

    Is that a word? No silly! It just, very indirectly, means that I’ve been given a huge responsibility to work on a project that is very close to my heart. The project involves the very large scope of promoting Arab Art. Promoting perhaps is not the best word since the Art we’re working with is […]

  • One Year in Utah

    One Year in Utah

    I have not made a post in almost 3 1/2 years! Shameful! A complete abandonment and I sincerely apologise to myself. I am going to skip 2 1/2 years. A lot happened in that time, much of it bad, but also much of it amazing and life altering. In the last year, I find myself […]

  • The Glass is half full/empty !

    The Glass is half full/empty !

    I launched www.sobeirut.com last summer and have been pushing the development coming to a year now which is partly the reason I’ve not been blogging !  We’ve cleared up a lot of bugs and evolved it to be the most useful guide for cultural and leisure activities in Lebanon.  As of writing this we have over 10k Facebook […]

  • Frangipani Tree

    Frangipani Tree

    Every day while walking to and from work I pass by a beautiful Plumeria Tree commonly referred to as Frangipani.  The fragrance it emits is mesmerisingly soothing, a true source of aroma therapy.  Seems this tree is native to Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean, and South America as far south as Brazil but can be grown in tropical and sub-tropical […]

  • Le Trio Joubran

    Le Trio Joubran

    Last night at the Beirut Music Hall, a band by the name of Le Trio Joubran quite literally mesmerised, hypnotised and captivated everyone including myself.  The 3 brothers from Palestine played their Ouds in a way I had never seen before and conjured in me a vivid past life as I closed my eyes and […]

  • Stop Solidere – The battle between Hariri’s Solidere and El Khoury’s Saint George Hotel

    Stop Solidere – The battle between Hariri’s Solidere and El Khoury’s Saint George Hotel

    One of the nicest new developments in Beirut in the last few years is Zaitunay Bay, the marina area of Solidere that has replaced the old Normandy garbage landfill used during the civil war. Many tourists and locals are visiting this Marina for the many great restaurants and hang outs that have opened there. While visiting […]

  • Transhumanism


    Since Elon Musk’s viral comments over Killer Robots the last couple of days, I’ve been reading up and have come across some interesting info.  I’d read a while back the Wired cover feature ‘Why the future doesn’t need us‘ but it was interesting to re-read on this subject. While googling I came across this video […]
