I am having problem sending photos through hello, first I thought it was a regular Syrian server problem as we are used to that, but the surprise is it's a global matter: take a look at this page
I'm so furious cause I hate flickrs, it sucks, and the latest photo I sent needs resolution and they just destructed it.
Waiting till they fix that damn problem. I will send a post that doesn't need any photo then I will try to update the photo when it works:Herissah Nabkieh:
We arrived after a long day of walking, we walked about 35 km in one day "I think we could cross Lebanon for example in two days!".
Anyway walking back from Mar Moussa Monastery was so long and tiring, we arrived to al Nabek, and as usual the people were staring at us like we were aliens.. heh..
We were like potato bags laying on the street and the walk sides, tired to death and hungry.
Suddenly a middle aged woman appeared, from where? I don't know, the only thing I care about that she was carry a very important thing, the goal of life at that moment:
a Nabky sweets box!
-Wow.. i screamed
Lauren an Australian teacher who was with our group stared at me and said:
-why's that wow Amr, the lady isn't that cool and she didn't talk to you..
deep inside I knew what the lady was going to do:
- Tfaddaloo.. she said
- what does that woman want… asked Loren
- She wants us to test the Arabic sweets they make in Al Nabek..
- Is anyone hungry? The woman asked..
Lauren (who was 50 YO) jumped like a kid and ran toward the box, it wasn't Loran alone that he did so, all I can remember is we ended up that box in one second!
The bus came to pick us and on the way back Lauren and his wife and a Macedonian woman were eating the sweets…
- I am surprised how generous Syrian people are… Lauren said to
the Macedonian woman who smiled like she totally agrees.
In each time I will eat Arabic sweets, I will remember the Syrian people: the most generous people on earth.
PS: ma yatlubuhu al mushahidoon: this is for Sinan, he asked me to talk about herisseh.
