I'm Going to Beirut!

Assalamu alaikum Quest readers and awesome blog friends!

A while back, about a year ago, I applied to teach English literature in Beirut. A few months back, I got the job!

I've lived all my life out of Lebanon or any Arab country -- never visited too. This will be my first visit, and stay, for a year, inshAllah. Come with me on this new adventure!

The child raised in the West grows up and goes back 'home' to explore her roots and culture and the country of her forefathers, with all its turbulent politics. The question of Gaza, for example, continues to shape the pulse of the streets in Lebanon.

I plan on doing many things there, but if marriage prospects comes my way, you will be the first to know, I promise. I wonder if I still have to come down the stairs rehearsed over there, or if they accept improv.

Finally, and this is more of a thought, I wonder if I should start a beirut-blog ...

Stay Tuned!

As Salaamu Alaikum Dear Sis:

Alhamdulillah! Mabrook!

You will be perfect over there. And I think that the marriage horizon will look much better, Insha Allah.

Definitely keep us posted.

Much love and Salaams!
