As most of you know, I spent some time working in Lebanon in 2004. We were working at Beirut Airport as it had recently opened after the 15 year civil war finally came to a close and they wanted their jacks serviced. At the time, there were work crews on and around the runways repairing damage sustained to them over the years. Today’s news that Israeli shells had hit the runways made me sad – I’m not condoning either side in this, both have rights and wrongs, but my time in Beirut was eye opening – during my childhood, all you heard was about the war there, then when I went – it was so peaceful and friendly – I’d certainly go there for a holiday…well, maybe not right now.
Weather here is still awesome – hot and sunny…well, this morning is slightly cooler, but still lovely – I LOVE summer – long may it last.
