10:40 pm
has them in the worse than my work because 1st of all, i'm perceived as neutral. second of all, i think that in fuzzy on the society, you are a woman man, dental show, their weakness is more than, than if you, because there's no dies and there's no eagle and, and one day, you know, i was asking them this question. imagine i, i was none. would that have work the way it had look? and they only did, he said no, no, that there are still traces of hatred and violence and serious street. but tentative reconciliation efforts are at least under way from tripoli, we travel on to be blows. the small port town is just 40 kilometers away. be blows is one of the prettiest locations on the coast. i came as a child on a school trip. the blows offers natural beauty and a rich cultural heritage. phoenicians romans, arabs,

modern is skyline. so all new and high tech, low, high tech, how combination you combine tradition, nature, land and village in a way that makes this place so authentic behind the study. that's really amazing. hello, mechanical i. e and ideally policy. and i said i have to, to be honest, but i'm often surprised at the reactions of some of the people who come to me. so i know they need a modern life london pure and i, it was de la layla when, when and where does your passion come from any being? i and i should, i lived abroad for almost 17 years during the war i left lebanon, so bizarre, i spent half the time in saudi arabia. and the other half in london guesthouse is the idea of having a restaurant came to me during this time. it was kind of a dream of mine. he loved when i returned, i wanted to fulfill that dream here in lebanon. lebanon is my homeland, and i'd like to show that lebanon is a modern country,
10:43 pm
even with all the many problems we have here, did. elaine linux, that a way melodic polio, lebanon, has many problems for sure, thought best is at best sellers. yes, but i'm very optimistic. optimistic set off at that optimism is the vital. in august 2020, there was a huge explosion in may route. the entire ports on was flattened in the blast. dozens of people died and hundreds were injured. it turned out that almost $3000.00 tons of highly flammable material had been stored for years at the port without appropriate safety measures. its thought construction work may have triggered the detonation. the accident stood as a symbol of failure for a state that could not protect its people. ah,
10:44 pm
even before the explosion since 2019 people of all backgrounds have been protesting in beirut. ah, some one who was always fought for societal change and lebanon is the journalist giovanna hud dodd. her work is breaking taboos. that was the well, the plan i'm going to have a small kind of exercises like award has got to be at una, i mean, it is a long coming out with governor homosexuality is a criminal offense here. but there is a small l g, b, t i q plus community. but most people just conceal their sexuality. more often coming out leads to expulsion from the family. the writers romana hud supports the activists and organizers regular events such as this one. okay, always she might have like okay, firstly hello again and turn out. i'm really glad you're all here. you know what? i certainly don't need to say it again, but i will, an you're now in a place where there are no judgments. so lucky a winner. she said there's nothing negative here yet. hope there's just
