airplane timelines } kuwait to beirut, some highlights and back

I was looking forward to this trip to Beirut with my best friend Laura Boushnak. It was going to be a work/play vacation and I suppose we did both. We had many ups and one massively disappointing down, but here I want to only remember the pleasant times.

discommon } my unexpected date with a straight razor

My brother Ahmed recently bought a razor. He didn’t just get it from the Mishref Coop behind my parents’ house. It’s a serious work of art. And he asked me to take it home and photograph it. I am terrified of any sort of blade. I have a phobia (this is grotesque and very specific) of someone slicing my […]

UK days } part I } days one, two & the day before

Because I didn’t have time in the city, and when I went to Surrey there was no wi-fi, I could not update my blog on a regular basis. I’ve divided this series of posts into six parts: four parts covering my stay in the UK, a Traveling Tap post and a Stories of Eve post. […]

airplane timelines/UK days part five } beirut > london > kuwait

I decided to consolidate and ended up with a messy title, but it’s the only way I can do this right now and move on to other things. I’ve decided to sandwich the last of my UK days in between two Airplane Timeline entries. It makes more sense this way. Bon appetit! Oh and I’ve decided that the […]
