Fake Stuff

Posted by Mark

I was walking in this shopping district in Lebanon when I thought I spotted a Sony PSP in the display of one shop. On closer inspection it turned out to be a fake PSP surrounded by a Fake Nintendo DS and fake iPods. Click on the link for a picture of the display. [Picture]

snow

Awhile ago me and Nat drove up the mountain a bit to check out the snow and fuck was I shocked. There was A LOT of fucking snow, like a lot more then I had expected and imagined. I don’t remember a Christmas where there was this much snow by now. I got up to Faytroun an area before the ski slopes in Faraya and I had to turn back because the car was starting to slide and slip. I took some pictures though and video, the temperature was minus one. I will try to get the video online but here are the pictures:

Update: Here is the video, you probably need quicktime to view it. [MPEG 1.8MB]

My sister who is babysitting our pet hamster posted about her yesterday and she included a video of our hamster running around in her ball. She looks like a pinball machine gone haywire. [Link]

five degrees

Posted by Mark

5 degrees

Yesterday morning it was five degrees celcius where we are staying at. On my way down to sea level I saw cars coming down from higher up the mountain with snow on their roofs. Its tradition that when it first starts snowing in your area you pile up as much snow as you can on the roof of your car and drive around like that as a way of informing people down below that its snowing up in the mountains where you live.

All of Lebanon seems to have the flu. I think the sudden change from its hot enough to wear a tshirt to its cold enough to store your frozen goods on the balcony has caught many people by surprise. Nat is sick and I am not, but I think thats going to change today. I feel it coming.

Drink Drink Drink Drink

beer beer beer!!!

I was in the supermarket with Nataly when we were passing the alcohol section and I told her that if I lived in Lebanon I would have a huge bar in my apartment and draft beer. Just as I finished my sentence I saw the most amazing thing. A mini Heineken keg!!!! Fucking rocks, 5 Liters of fucking draft beer for only KD5! ($15). I quickly got one and its now sitting in my room infront of me. I would open it and start drinking now but I am worried I would be too drunk to go out later tonight. I vote this mini keg the best invention of the decade! Now if only I can figure out how to sneak one of these into Kuwait, its fucking heavy!

POLAROID

polaroid book

I got a really cool book today called The Polaroid Book. I haven’t opened the package yet so I don’t know hows the book inside. I just really love the books package and I am afraid to open it. Looking at the reviews on Amazon it seems other readers also didn’t want to open the package. I guess I will just keep the book closed until I get bored of the package and then tear it open.

Snow Top

snow top

Today for lunch we went up higher into the mountains where the weather was freezing cold. There was a slight drizzle but sadly no snow.. yet. According to the weather forecast it will start snowing in the next few days. I did catch a glimpse of a snow covered mountain top which was good to see. Its only Day 2 here but it feels like day 20, I have managed to get so much done in these 2 days its unbelievable.
