Beirut, goddamn

Pretty much no matter how you couch it, when you tell people that you’re going to Beirut, they are uhhhh surprised. Also, there’s basically no way to tell someone you’re going to Beirut without sounding pretentious, so that’s another problem. Then when you say actually you’ve already been there LAST YEAR, it just goes downhill to my ears, anyways. I imagine if I asked someone about their travels and they said they were visiting some equally recently-bombed out place (thanks Israel!), I’d stand there like uhhhhh what? too, with a side serving of who is this highfalutin’ person? Goddamn!

Do not even get me started on when I tell people about Syria.
