Friday

We drove down to Sea Sweet in Shwaifet for Knefe. The Damour bridge is finally getting repaired and the banana trees there are starting to spring. There are over 1000 billboards on the highway from Jieh to Beirut. 949 of which promote political parties and the other 51 belong to bebsi. We drove further north and into Beirut. Day by day the army presence is becoming less visible. As I mentioned in one of my former posts the situation is under total control, I don’t know why you people are so scared. Mum calls me every second day asking me to go back. The LBC, the tourism ministry is led by an LFr. Perhaps he should contact his buddies there and ask them to stop promoting their bullshit sectarian agenda because its crippling the nation. The average citizen here predicts the worst. He is the ultimate pessimist. I do by best and I avoid conversations which are political in nature with them. It’s impossible to communicate with them, they don’t want to or they simple don’t understand reason and logic.

We done some shopping at bourj hamoud and I bought an orange top to impress Walid Jumblat. We all got our haircuts, had lunch in the Ashrafieh followed by Gelato then we came back to Jieh to prepare for tonight’s engagement. I called Katrine she came past and helped me iron my clothes. I had a shave and a shower. I stepped out of the shower and into a pool of water. I thought it was the sink leaking. I double checked ah damn… it was the sewage. I took the lid off and stupid me had forgotten what mum told me. Never, never flush toilet paper down the toilet. Use the bin. The sewage was blocked and I had to unblock it. I couldn’t leave it that way, it would stink the place, I had no one to call every one was getting ready for the engagement. I ended up doing it myself and I done a fine job. I stepped back in the shower and I had used up all the hot water. So I get the kettle again…

Got dressed and I went down to Fred’s house. We had a few drinks there, then we made our way to the Jieh Marina. The Zafee band greeted us in traditional Lebanese costumes and we made our way in. The resort was immaculate; lighting really does make a big difference. We got a group of boys together, we ordered 4 arghiles and we had the time of our life. The party finished at 12. The oldies went home and the girls and boys stayed back till 2 am drinking and singing. Nobody was sober enough to drive down to Beirut so we came back to my place and kept drinking till 4 am.

Saturday

Although we were all a little hung over we had much to do today. Rony picked up the flowers from the marina and we took them up to church. Moukhabarat, darak, army and PSP militiamen were all over the place, in gardens on rooftops; on the highway they were everywhere. They had 3 checkpoints on the streets surrounding the monastery. Walid is coming at 4 pm. It was still early we placed the flowers inside the church and we made our way to the beach. We jumped the fence near Happy Johns. We ask an old man open on of the gates for us we had girls with us and they couldn’t make the jump. He refused he said he was under instruction from “istez victor” not to open or let anybody in. I don’t know who victor is and I really don’t care who Victor is. I told him, if Victor says anything tell him who are. If he has a problem you know where we live. Trying to privatize public property, who do these people think they are? Beach access is very limited for the general public and some people here cant afford the 20000 LL entry fee. I can’t believe Jieh people exploiting their fellow villagers. The only Jieh owned resorts I have been to have never charged us. Jieh Beach (Walid Farid) and Jonas (Dr Nassif Azzi) thanks to both of these men who have opened their doors and their hearts to us.

This is our land. And I made that clear later on in the after noon to one of the darak who refused to let me into my street. He asked me to park the car on the road and walk up. The street was getting blocked for the Jumblat visit. Finally I convinced him and he let me in. but he did instruct me not to drive past my house. I drove into the drive way and there was a PSP guy there. In my drive way and heavily armed. Trespassing. No such thing here. Damn he even invited me into my driveway. “ Tfadal fout” But I got him a beauty. Ahel al beit ma badon 3azeme.

Had a quick shower, put on my jeans and my orange top. Looked over the Jieh from my balcony and it was like a mini fortress. The safest place in Lebanon. I walked up to Church Square and I stood with our Administrator. Be noss deen al Jieh surrounded by hundreds of PSP’s wearing an Orange top. I LOVE LIFE. I was treated very suspiciously and some guy wearing white pants and a cheap blue top kept tailing me. His suspicion might have been eased after I started mingling with a few other locals. He came towards us and asked a colleague of his who was speaking with our admin who I was. The other guy’s replies “ al shab ben hawn men Jame3etna” my blood boiled. Jame3etna??? Jame3etna aya Jame3aaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Damn this. I kept my mouth shut, I smiled and I didn’t say a word.

The mayors from the surrounding suburbs stared making their way in to the monastery. Clergymen and ministers followed them. We walked in. the first gathering was held inside the formal monastery lounge down stairs near the monastery church. We were refused entry and asked to go up stairs to the school hall. We made our way up.

Honestly although I did take pictures with them all and I did enjoy the day, something kept telling me. AJ you don’t belong here. You shouldn’t be here. I know I shouldn’t have been there, I didn’t want to be there, but I did make the most of it.

The whole concept was wrong. Nothing was right about it. I am sure you all know why. But some people here, failed to see my point. One person shared the same view, its unfortunate that his brother does not ;-). I wont discuss my reasons. I will leave it for you to come to your own conclusion. Jouzo delivered his usual rhetoric, marwan hemade didn’t speak, neither did Dr George Nader azzi. Walid spoke for a minute, Tero read something and Mr Camile Chamoun (Dory’s son and I exchanged phone numbers) I will be meeting him soon. I am sure he and I will have a lot to discuss. I think he is getting ready for the next elections he was curious about Jieh people in Australia, what they do and when they plan to return to their church. It was a very short conversation but we clicked. He gave me his number and asked me to meet with him this coming week.

I bumped into Mr Marwan Hamade on the stairs whilst taking my photo with Camile. He has a warm smile and a firm handshake. I thanked him for his attendance he asked about Sydney and the reason for my visit. He asked if my choice of shirt color was deliberate. I replied. Mr Marwan fee shee be loubnan beseer bel soudfee? Akeed la2 he responded. We took a photo wished each other the best of luck and walked away. I saved the best comment for Walid. I couldn’t get a good shot with him the guy with the cheap shirt kept pushing me away. But I did speak to him. I welcomed him in Jieh and I said “3a2bel ma nshoufak bel Rabieh” he smiled he thanked me and he walked away.

I was jumping from one place to another taking photos. Deliberately provoking them. Right in the middle of Jouzos speech I went right infront of walid and took a photo of him. My top really stood out. I will show you the photos, the admin took some also. Enjoy. It was a fun but meaningless day. Just a photo opp no more no less. It signified nothing for us. But I wont comment on the visit and tell you how I truly feel. I will leave that for you.

Although the meeting was meaningless. It was a victory for us. The highlight of the day came at 5.30pm. I didn’t bring it to the attention of anybody, but I hope they noticed the irony. The church bells started ringing. They never do that on a Saturday. But they rang just as walid was leaving. We all heard them. But I just hope that people gave them enough attention. I hope they realize why those bells rang. I am going up on Monday to ask rayes al deir the very same question Marwan hamade asked me. Was it deliberate? I hope he answers me the same way I answered marwan.

Jumblats motorcade drove off. Him in the drivers seat with Marwan hamade in the passenger seat. No tinted windows and the Ranger Rover wasn’t bullet proof. Moustahdaf??? What a joke. Wake up people. Wake up.

We stayed back hanging out beneath the trees next to the church. Dr George Nader apologized; we have to reschedule our interview for Thursday. In the evening we went to saida for dinner. We stayed there till 1 am then we came back to my house, arghile, cards and drinks.

Sunday

It was Tony Francois Azzi’s memorial mass. Following church we drove down to khalde for Knefe again. Then came to Jieh. Bought khebez 3al saj from Rmaileh. Then we went down to the Beach. Jana this time in Damour. The resorts were full and life is starting to get back to normal despite of the events happening up north. There was a beach party, we got drunk and we joined in dancing on tables and in the pool. Half the people there are on drugs, surely they must have popped a couple of ecstasy pills, they deny it at first but one look at their pupils and you can tell. You can easily mistake this place to be some day club in the Greek islands, its just a little bit more expensive here and some people speak Arabic.

We were having a great day and the party looked like dragging on forever. Until at 6.30 pm we get a call informing us of the skirmish in ein el helwe. Within 10 minutes the place was empty you could hear the bombardment from here. we all met outside the church each giving his opinion on the events which are unfolding. They think its going it get worse. I believe nothing will happen. Its nothing major. Jund al Sham have attacked the army who killed one of their members in Naher al Bared. The army retaliated immediately and within two hours every thing was back to normal. Hamas and Fatah (PLO not Islam) issued a statement supporting the army. Again the whole nation is behind the army, we are just waiting for the Government (who funded and aide those terrorists) to give them army the green light and rid us of this evil. Saniora must step down. We want a national unity government.

There is no such thing as privatising public land in Jieh apart from the blocks of land the old railway used to possess along the coast. All people are allowed to use the sand though where the water soaks and nothing more than that. Jieh was historically "before the Lebanese republic" a land of agriculture and the actual beaches were unused and even deemed useless to the agricultural community. Thus, private property including sandstrips were more valuable if they contained soil rather than sand, and those who had sand on their property were more the lower class..

If you go to sandy places in Jieh, you are actually technically in someone's backyard and on private property, thus they can charge you a cover charge for entry (pays for cleaning, maintenance and some profit), except for the wet sand section. The only problem is how to get to it, you can't get to the wet sand unless there is a public access somewhere, which I don't think there is.

In other areas, property along the sand strip is kind of like "crown land" but Jieh has a special status in that it was more agricultural and it is just a luck of time that those farmers continued possessing land now considered as beach tourism value.

to answer your question, no. that's not her. my grandmother is cute. She's teter Helene "Sahhyoune" originally from Saida. Tante Mahhiba is her sister in law that lives next door.

Anyway, saw your pictures, hahaha you're a sh@t stirrer.
Keep safe and have a great time.

She asked me to go eat from the "Sobeir Tree" shkareye be haide al manyouke" ...lmao she must hate her left neighbours.

Monday

Breakfast at the Boustani bakery. 2 la7m be 3ajeen and a Miranda. Drove up to Barja. By far the most dangerous road I have driven on, especially now that it is been reconstructed. I developed my photos all 130 of them and all it cost was 3000LL and I got them copied on CD for free. I spent most of the day with Fred and Jonas. For a weekday attendance at the resorts was satisfactory. We were starving, we tried walking in to the bamboo bay for lunch but the lifeguard there wouldn’t let us. He started blowing his whistle and waving his hands, jarasna. Some parts of the beach are in desperate need of maintenance, they really need to be cleaned. The Jieh council has turned a blind eye to this. We caught up with a few boys who had jumped the fence at Happy Johns and starting planning the design of our summer tent, which we agreed to call Abou Jamra café. This years one is going to be the biggest, two levels, with the ground level subdivided. Elie Shawish and his mates are going up to ba3seer to get some timber; we are going to get some bamboo sticks and some palm leaves. Charbel Boustani (the town handy man) will get the rest.

This is the first week of summer and we are behind schedule. This tent should have been completed last week. I doubt that we will be able to complete it this week but most definitely it should be complete the following week. We are getting ready for a big summer, it should be a blast. (although it has been literally been so far on average two a week)

In the evening I went to dinner with a friend. We started off at StarBucks café at the Galaxy mall in Furn al shebak. The coffee mugs here are massive, but the taste sucks. A double strength Late tastes like a Mcdonalds flat white. Midway through our coffee we hear a bang and the waiter there inform us that a bomb has gone of a few blocks away causing considerable damage. We nodded our heads, sipped our coffee and continued on with our conversation. It’s no big deal. These things are expected, it’s become a way of life here. We drove down to Monot afterwards for dinner and drinks. It was deserted. Perhaps it’s still early in the season. When everything stuffs up, your sure to find one place packed other than the casino you have Saniors. I parked the car on the road, before you know it some guy comes up and asks me for ID and asks me to open the boot. Cool, I done what was requested exchanged thanks locked the car and we made our way inside. He calls me back and says it’s a valet parking. Wtf it’s a public road, he didn’t care, he wanted money 2000LL or else we couldn’t park there. I gave him the money and apologized.

We stayed at Saniors drinking, eating and smoking argile till 2am. Instead of the ceramic cone used on the argile this time the tobacco was placed inside a lemon, which added a rich taste to it. I was starting to get a little bit tipsy and it was a log drive back to jieh. I knew the way coming down, but the sun was still up at 8pm how on earth am I going to get back this late and if I do manage to find my way, how am I going to see and avoid the holes in the ground and there are many of them. I didn’t want to ask her for direction, that’s very embarrassing for a guy although I could have been excused, I didn’t want to take the risk. I took my chances dropped her of at home and made my way to the coast. If you ever get lost here just head to the beach, it visible from anywhere. This time I was searched at the checkpoints. The best way to avoid this is to have female company (their aren’t many female terrorists ready to blow themselves up). The second best way to avoid this is to speak English and a little broken Arabic, but be careful do it with the army and not the darak. Who tend to get offended. It took me 30 minutes to get the Jieh, doing 140 km on the freeway. No cops to pull me over. I love driving in Lebanon.

Tuesday

Like yesterday we had breakfast at the Boustani bakery and Fred and I went to the beach again. Our plan was to go Baalbak but every one keeps telling us to wait for the holidays and we can all go on field trips and bus excursions. Fred was getting engaged again today, this time at church. So we left the beach early but we were toasted. In the evening we went to saida for dinner then back to Damour for cocktails. I went to the Internet café at 11pm. Ibrahim was closing. He gave me the key, turned the motor on and asked me to lock up when I was finished. Cool I thought. I stayed there till 3 am uploading photos, sending emails and catching up with everyone on msn. I had 3 computers running one to upload, one to down load and the other to surf. The connection is so slow.

Wednesday

Woke up early, charbel and I had decided to go hunting in ba3seer. There are no birds in the afternoon, so we thought we will try the early morning. Stocked up on ammunition, got the Jefet and we made our way up. We spent 3 hours up there and came back with 9 birds. Not enough for a 3azeeme. I don’t know what to do with them, so we gave them to Shawish.

I went down to Beirut in the early afternoon and caught up with a friend for lunch and drinks and that dragged on till the early evening. Beirut is really over populated and very polluted. Stepping into some restaurants and bars is like traveling to another country here. Similar to the resorts you could easily mistake yourself to be in another country. Came back to the jieh and caught up with the boys at church square beneath the trees. We are planning a way to permanently damage the phone box there. It attracts unwanted guests in the hood. They should consider relocating it to the main road or even better place another one down there.

Plans are under way for the party on Friday night. Were having a party at the community center. George is getting married on Sunday its also going to be his bucks night, so expect some fire works. I will post photos. Badna nwale3a. The DJ has been organized, and the basketball court is our dance floor, food and drinks will be served inside.

By 10 pm there was about 20 of us sitting on the benches smoking argile discussing politics and last summers war. Damn I wish I was here back then. Rony, George and Charbel Chaer came over afterwards and we had a few drinks at my place.

Friday

Other than writing in my personal diary every night, I haven’t written much on my public journal in the past two weeks. I am not slacking off, it’s just that I don’t know who is reading this journal or if anybody is interested. But I have received a few sms and msn messages from friends asking me why I haven’t posted on the journal. So I will do my best and update my journal once a week. I will keep you guys updated on all village affairs on a daily basis as they are far more controversial than my diary entries and I know that you guys love gossip and controversy.

The battle in naher al bared is over, the army has declared victory. Their declaration of victory reminded me of Bush’s ‘Mission Accomplished” speech in 05. What a pity, bas yalla, I wont discuss politics in this post.

Lebanon is slowly coming back to life. The school vacations have commenced, and the exams are over. We are gearing up for summer. We haven’t scheduled the annual jieh field trips yet; we are still waiting for a few more Australian pensioners to make their way over. We spend most of our days in jieh and at its beaches and our nights either at my house or beneath the trees outside Church Square. Occasionally we head down to Kaslik and jounieh for dinner and few drinks. Every second day we go down to Beirut and its surrounding suburbs. Center Ville is beautiful even with all the tents there. I have been there at least 10 times and I can’t get enough of the place.

On my first trip there we spent the day visiting the many churches and mosques. The artwork on the ceiling and walls of the churches is phenomenal, some are honestly breath taking. But nothing impresses me more than St Charbels church in Jieh. I am fascinated by its simplicity, its history and its serenity.

I visited the Hariri shrine took some photos and left bala fat7a bala balout. Took some more photos near the martyrs statue and we made our way to the virgin mega store. The books section there is rather remarkable and they have some wonderful titles. Although I advice you all to buy your books from Amazon not virgin. But I don’t have a mailing address here so I have no choice. I asked some one what postal address would I give if I were to purchase something online. Hahahaha they said say “Shere3 kneeset al saidee in Jieh.” I love Lebanon.

We had a few drinks in center ville around 7pm, it was too early to have dinner. People have dinner here at 9pm. This was supposed to be peak hour but the place was deserted. I think we were the only people there. Rotana café was empty, star bucks had 3 people, half the restaurants were closed. Jewellery shops and other stores were closed. Some had put up their contact details for customers. Some signs read. “If you would like to purchase anything form this shop please contact X on #Y. I think by now I have exhausted the supply of churches and mosques in Beirut and also the other places of interest.

Harrisa doesn’t disappoint. I don’t know how many times I can go on admiring the view from there even with all those grey clouds there, it is one of the most wonderful sights I can imagine in Lebanon. But I know I will be more impressed when I visit the monasteries in the north and those in the south. I am planning on visiting those sights with my uncle and sister both of whom are scheduled to arrive here this weekend.

I haven’t done anything extraordinary yet. We don’t go out at night that often. Some people here are expecting a revolt at any moment and I have every earnest intention to stay and see it at a close range if not participate.



Its amazing how the weeks differentiate from each other in Lebanon. Last week the place was almost deserted this week its buzzing.

The bars and nightclubs are reopening and the resorts in jieh are packed on weekends. Last night we went up to Edde Sands in jbeil. DJ Tiesto was playing live. I can honestly say this was the greatest party I have ever been to. Can you imagine 18 000 people at a beach party? The music was electric and the crowd was phenomenal. People are sick of politics and sick of politicians they want to party. What puzzles me is how can they afford this lifestyle. Going out isn’t cheap here. Your spending a minimum of USD$200 each night. Drinks are 15000LL and water is 5000LL. we bribed our way into the VIP section for $50. Its open bar in there and the crowd is much more attaractive.

A friend of mine took me to a private party at his mates residence near Fanar. The last time I was exposed to such luxury, wealth and gorgeous people was back in 98 when I went to LA on a soccer tour. I will never forget that night. We met a group of lady’s at the Blue Room a jazz bar on Sunset Blvd we partied with them at the Viper room and the Roxbury I was under age then 21 is the legal age in the US and bribing the security guy there is cheaper than Lebanon. After we spent the night drinking we went with them to their mansion in the Hollywood hills. This wasn’t Hollywood this was fanar hills. A 5 story house with the top floor an open studio with a massive bar, a giant screen and a hectic sound system. Everybody had to dress in white and no cameras allowed. Strictly by invitation only and everybody was searched before we went in and our ID’s were photocopied. The catering was superb, and the only the finest of drinks and cigars served. We partied the night away till 9 in the morning. Dancing to the tunes of Lambada and Kaoma and mix of other Portuguese and Spanish songs. Their was about 30 people there and each person had to participate in the karaoke contest, I sang and charmed (or tried to) the girls with Warda’s song “Betwanes Beek” the george wassouf version. After the Karaoke contest, it was bikini contest on the roof by the pool. Boys in their shorts and girls in their bikinis. If you didn’t have shorts Mark the host provided them. You had to participate and we all attempted the cat walk to the tunes of Madonna’s “deeper” and “vogue”. Everybody was off their faces, the plasma screens all over the house were playing playboy play mate of the year. Every hour or so the music would stop and the DJ would play a remix of GMA’s “ YA sha3ba loubnan al 3azeem” who says Aounists don’t know how to have fun.
Few things not to do around old Jieh people in Jieh.

1. Don’t play cards. Az3ar.
2. Don’t say you went to the casino. Az3ar.
3. Don’t come home after 3am. Az3ar.
4. Don’t smoke. Az3ar.
5. Don’t speak or walk around with a girl. Az3ar.
6. Don’t mix with non Jieh people. Az3ar.
7. Don’t go clubbing. Az3ar.
8. Don’t ever spin the car wheels. Az3ar.
9. Don’t drive over 70 kph. Az3ar.
10. Don’t get drunk. Az3ar.
11. Don’t argue with a person older than you. Az3ar.
12. Don’t be a minute late to church. Az3ar.
13. Don’t go to communion if they know you are an Az3ar, they will make things worse for you.
14. Don’t steal grapes from the grape trees on the road. Even if it’s a small 7osroum. Az3ar.
15. Drive very very very slow in 2asouba when going over the speed humps. The people their curse. No shit. They wish you evil. Stay away from 2asouba.
16. Don’t take your shirt off in the presence of females. Az3ar.
17. Don’t drink Lebanese coffee. Az3ar. Seriously what’s with that? I will explain on request.
A lot of things are forbidden in this town. So it’s best to remain incognito for the sake of not being labeled an Az3ar.

Cheers I will post more later on.

I heard QLD won the state of origin tararattattaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

For those 17 no-nos, I would rather do them and be called an Az3ar. Wear a nametag with it written on it
Don't piss down my back and tell me it's raining.

.
1. Don’t play cards. Az3ar.
2. Don’t say you went to the casino. Az3ar.
3. Don’t come home after 3am. Az3ar.
4. Don’t smoke. Az3ar.
5. Don’t speak or walk around with a girl. Az3ar.
6. Don’t mix with non Jieh people. Az3ar.
7. Don’t go clubbing. Az3ar.
8. Don’t ever spin the car wheels. Az3ar.
9. Don’t drive over 70 kph. Az3ar.
10. Don’t get drunk. Az3ar.
11. Don’t argue with a person older than you. Az3ar.
12. Don’t be a minute late to church. Az3ar.
13. Don’t go to communion if they know you are an Az3ar, they will make things worse for you.
14. Don’t steal grapes from the grape trees on the road. Even if it’s a small 7osroum. Az3ar.
15. Drive very very very slow in 2asouba when going over the speed humps. The people their curse. No shit. They wish you evil. Stay away from 2asouba.
16. Don’t take your shirt off in the presence of females. Az3ar.
17. Don’t drink Lebanese coffee. Az3ar. Seriously what’s with that? I will explain on request.

A lot of things are forbidden in this town. So it’s best to remain incognito for the sake of not being labeled an Az3ar.


These are the commandments you should abide by to live in peace with thy neighbours in Jieh.
