I am in Beirut

Post by Mark

I arrived to Lebanon I think around 1:30PM Lebanon time, left the airport and came straight to the hotel where I just lazed it out. Today is the only day where I can relax and do nothing so I am taking advantage of it. In a bit my brother is coming to pick me up and I will probably go have a drink and a bite to eat with him somewhere.

hotel room view

My rooms view is pretty sweet, I got the sea view this time around which is great. One thing I forgot to pack is a swimsuit, the hotel here has a roof top pool which overlooks Beirut, its an incredible view which makes swimming very tempting. Oh yeah, the weather here is like Kuwait… winter is over.

Best thing about this hotel is the location, its near the American University of Beirut which means there are a lot of things to do here when I have free time. By a lot of things I mostly mean food.

I need to go down to Beirut for a few days to shoot a commercial and I should be back Friday night. My flight leaves at noon so I have to pack everything tonight. I will have Internet access from my hotel room so I will continue to blog from there.

Word of the day: Valley Girl

Post by Mark

Was talking to a friend now and he used the word “valley girl”. So I checked it on Urban Dictionary and this is what I found:

Valley Girl – A name for a type of girl who likes to say OMG and like and totally and “whatever” and likes to gossip to the point where it is detrimental to their health. Usually found off the coast of California. Seemingly beautiful in nature but truly idiotic. Just watch the “Clueless” movie or TV show to see a good example of what a valley girl is. [Urban Dictionary]
