I am back: blog is back

So I was in Beirut for a closed workshop on ISIS and my visit coincided with the trash strike.  So I, the sensitive and delicate creature, was severly affected and was clearly food poisoned there.  All what you hear about the new rules for food preparation is untrue.  I bought a labne container from the state-run COOP in Hamra and the next day it was rotten.  Trash was everywhere.  I also probably should not have purchased dairy desserts from one of my favorite places, Zaatarwazeit.  

PS It hit me. This has been the longest absence from the blog ever since it was launched some 12 years ago this summer.
