Muslim Man Hailed as Hero for Actions in Kosher Grocery Store Attack

TIME

A Muslim employee of the Paris kosher grocery store attacked by a terrorist Friday is being hailed as a hero for saving multiple customers from the gunman.

When Amedy Coulibaly opened fire in the Hyper Cacher grocery store, employee Lassana Bathily reportedly ushered several customers into a freezer to save them from the attack. “I went down to the freezer, I opened the door, there were several people who went in with me. I turned off the light and the freezer,” Bathily, 24, told French network BFMTV, according to the Huffington Post‘s translation. “I brought them inside and I told them to stay calm here, I’m going to go out. When they got out, they thanked me.”

Multiple people survived the attack, which French President Francois Hollande called “an anti-Semitic act,” by hiding inside the freezer.

Some survivors were reportedly able to call their friends and relatives from…

Serbian Street Gems

I mentioned to you previously– more like ages ago- that for some reason Serbians enjoy  scribbling all over the city. And really, wherever you go around the city you’ll find stuff like this. It’s not only on walls, you can see train carts covered with amazing graffiti as well.  The city is just covered in spray paint -some are really pretty and eye catching while others are just vandalism. So here’s a bunch of pictures I’ve taken in the time that I have been in Belgrade. I spent a bit of time collecting these, and some of these pictures I find very pretty, but there is a lot more to look at and admire, and I simply couldn’t . Hope you enjoy the gallery! DSC_26521

My Return Flight!

 

Ciaoo! Hello! Hi!! Where have I been right!? Well I was too busy enjoying my time and making the best of it I couldn’t keep up with posting! But I am back to Lebanon, as I said earlier and back to posting!

After locking the apartment door for the last time!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So I did so much in the entire trip and especially in the few weeks that I missed my posting deadlines, but the only topic I could come up with as a come back post, is another Air Serbia review! (you can check the first one here!)Hopefully, this post will help me organize my thoughts, and post something about my time in Belgrade, but until then, this has to do.

I previously mentioned that I didn’t have such a pleasent experience with Air Serbia on my flight from Beirut to Belgrade; however, on the way back it was very different.

 I’ve been away for so long, but that’s only because I was busy having a good time and enjoying every moment while it lasted! I’m going to share everything about Serbia soon, but differently. I want to share everything about my summer and everything I loved in Serbia! So hold on and stay tuned 🙂 What made me write this post was the fact that I’m leaving. And I actually wrote it on my way to the airport. These eight weeks were such an amazing experience for me. I shared everything with a group of people that I didn’t know, but came to cherish. I had moments I will never forget and it saddens me that everything is over. But it was over at the right time, because I am left with beautiful memories and because I really miss my family and friends.  I hope one day I can come back to the Balkans and have another great experience. But until then, it’s a big thank you to Serbia for giving me all this in such a small period of time 🙂

 

And now our plane is being called, so until next time … Volim te!

Week 4 In Videos!

Hello everyone ❤

So my previous post about week 4 included so many interesting activities and pictures that I felt it was too long to add these videos to it as well. So if you missed the post you should check it out here. And if you are a loyal follower then enjoy the videos 😀

 

This video is the Indian dance from our cultural night on Friday. It was amazing. These guys planned it and choreographed their dance; it was really enthusiastic. Their dance tempted me to gather all the Lebanese to do the dabke.

This video is the Lebanese people doing the dabke that night! It was so much fun!

Finally, this video is of a lovely group of violinists and one cellist playing on Knez Mihailova on Sunday. Phenomenal!

Hope you enjoyed the videos … See you next time ❤

The One That Marks Half-Way

So hello there everyone 🙂 You can tell from the title that week 4 is over! I am half way through my stay in the lovely Belgrade. I really have  mixed emotions about whether I want to go back right NOW or whether what I have left is so little! But hey, all good things come to an end. And I would be really happy to get back to everyone back home, especially my own bed ❤ SAM_1619

So, how was my week, 4you may ask. Very good, very good indeed! Probably my best week so far.

Storytime with John

30th June 2014

So bit of a weird one. I’ll post this when I get an internet connection – but I am currently writing this from a hotel in Qingdao, China. Where is this place? I literally have no idea. I would Google it of course…but yeah…no internet connection. The reason I am here is that I have a FOURTEEN HOUR layover. FOURTEEN HOURS! Yeah, I didn’t book the flight – but that’s another story altogether…as you can probably work out, I am a little flustered at the moment!

Anyway, the flight from South Korea to China was actually pretty painless…well apart from the old man next to me who had the perfect three – bad breath, gas, and a fetish for belching…like honestly, there are well established rules when it comes to airplane travel, and emitting horrendously obnoxious odors from one orifice or the other, is definitely against the…
