It is not getting any cooler in Beirut. Whenever I get the chance to escape to the mountains I would not miss the chance. This weekend, we were running crazy serving burgers at 1670m above sea level at the Zaarour Lakeside Festival for 3 days.

The view was fanstastic and our burgers were nothing you could ever taste anywhere else. Perfectly crafted by us, the chefs of BiBayti, no one has tasted our burgers and was disappointed.

You make me utter sounds I tend to keep locked away.

I have to apologize for trying to mess with you, for trying to change you. It was a disastrous idea. I should’ve known I wouldn’t get the same result. I messed up and we ended up apart. I, having none of you, and you in the trash can.

I’m sorry

Yours,
Hisham
