Azrak Ice Cream: Famous and Now Open for Summer

I am glad the wage scale draft submitted by the Syndicate Coordination Committee did not pass yesterday, not because the banks and economic committees’ arguments convinced me, nor because I believe the current system is a just one, but simply because it’s not the right time to approve such a bill.

I wonder how hard it is for the Ministry of Tourism to spell-check Lebanese cities. Hamra is spelled differently twice, Achrafieh three times and Broummana is misspelled.
