Music, Movies, and Books

I'm into a variety of music genres. I like Arabic music especially Oud. Like all people of the Levant, Feyrouz is a part of my mourning routine. I also enjoy Feyrouz's son Ziyad songs. Oud musicians I listen to are Naseer Shamma, Munir Bashir. In western music, I like Simon & Garfunkel, System of a Down! Rammstein! RHCP...

In books I enjoy American literature, I especially adore John Steinbeck, I read Hemingway and Mark Twain as a teenager. In Arabic literature I love (and recommend!) Amin Maalouf(actually he writes in french but his works are well translated to Arabic haha) and Najib Mahfouz.

In Cinema... oh where to start... a good movie is like a good glass of wine (usually I do these two things together). Godard, Kubrick, PTA, de Palma, Scorcese, Allen, Leone....

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

That is yet to come!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm open to learning new things. Recommend books to me! teach me Chess or Backgammon. Let's practice german and Arabic! I did some distilling some time ago and extracted flower water from bitter orange roses would love to learn from people with similar experiences, crafts, soap making, woodwork! I play some Oud myself and would love to learn from musicians!
I enjoy film photography (analogue) and would love to meet people with the same interest.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I will bring with me delicious lebanese wine!
I can help learn Arabic or maybe enhance your English, and teach you a couple of Lebanese recipes ( though I will have to call my mother for advice every once in a while :D).

Countries I’ve Visited
