I took you to the extreme south once (here), now I’m taking you to the extreme north: To Tripoli, where I know so so so so many friendly, generous, helpful and welcoming people! Even my university students were sooo lovely and polite and made me feel even admired! I still “need” to go there sometimes, just for a visit, like on that sunny day, when we discovered an antique phonograph at a market along the river, right before the city’s castle. The shop owner wasn’t there, maybe he went to this mosque to pray? He answered our call and asked to come later. I’m glad we missed him, now we need to re-visit soon!
