Lebanon POW 9 – 15 Jan 2014

We are surely living in an extraordinary country.

I say it with pride? Well, maybe not so much, because living in an extraordinary country can be also a negative thing more than positive.

But with everything going around in Lebanon, I tried with this current Lebanese POW to make it as positive as I can, I hope I succeeded.

Lebanon POW 2 -8 Jan 2014

There is few moments that passes in life where we just feel that we need to shed some tears, to relax, to let it all out. but with no matter how much we want to express our self, there will always something waiting for us right behind the corner, waiting for us to stop us from expressing our self.

So whenever we see someone laughing we laugh, whenever someone is crying we cry. in our own way to blend in, we let those suppressed feelings to show up.

And maybe in Lebanon, this is what we need more often, to relax, to really express what we feel, and not just hide it infront of the others.

Lebanon POW 12-18 Dec

Is there really something called Christmas spirit, or is it just our love for life that drive our daily lives?

In this week’s POW, the determination that Lebanese people have to overcome the obstacles they have is something amazing that not too many countries have it.

Taking a look at the amazing decoration for the holiday season in different cities and regions is something very joyful and heartwarming.
