This is one of many article about why Lebanon should be a no man’s land, despite the corruption, the hate, the controversy, the shallowness, we try to move on and live.
But just as soon as winter comes, and people start preparing themselves for the cozy bed, and the sweet hot chocolate (with marshmallow), mother nature sprouts us with slippery streets, wet shoes, and floods coming out of everywhere.
Now if you were in a normal country, those obstacles wouldn’t be a problem, the municipality or the government would’ve managed to ease your way into the streets, on the other hand, when you’re a peaceful Lebanese citizen on your way to work or school, you encounter dangerous threats that may affect your life in a bad way, as per instance the sewers are all leaking, an ocean of human waste (mostly crap) are ravaging the pavements, the streets are drowning, you will be needing a canoe to cross, you can’t even help yourself with the umbrella because the wind is trying to steal it from you.
I sincerely would prefer to stay home all winter, and keep Lebanon a no man’s land.
We seriously need help making our streets a better place.
