Gentlemen,

My friend Elie's apartment was some 600 meters from yesterday's explosion in Beirut. Whilst his wife and two boys were away he was at home and is lucky to have survived - apartment (and block) severely damaged - most probably beyond repair. He has some 72 stitches in 22 places. The first two hospitals he walked to barefoot were trashed - only after 3kms he got to a hospital where he was attended to. As he said to me today he is grateful to be alive.

Pray for Lebanon.

Owain

The devastation caused by this ghastly explosion is almost beyond belief and is a major blow to an already stricken Lebanon. 

In this context, and in the light of how close he was, we should be thankful for the survival of your friend, a fellow member of our community, despite injury - and what sounds like a harrowing journey to get help - and the loss of his home. How fortunate that his family wasn't with him at the time. 

Let us hope that his recovery in body and mind is a speedy one.

So sorry to hear that poor Elie was caught up in this horrific incident, good news at least that both he and his family are safe.

Thank you All for your wishes, thank you Owain, I am really lucky thank God. in fact my house is 400 meters, more or less in few meters, away from the blast.
just remembering the scenario after the explosion is enough for me to live it again. I walked away from my house to the first, second and third hospital bare foot, only wearing socks. they were both destroyed i continued bare foot walking to the third that was also destroyed but the army was helping injured people (by hundreds) so they gave me basic help, until my wife knew were i was (or what was my status) then we went back to my open doors house and open walls & doors office to save what i could from my 35 years of collecting.... then went to the 4th hospital were i had the major stitches 74 in total of them 14 staples in the head alone and that was from 1:00 a.m till 6:00 a.m
4 weeks after the explosion I removed the stitches and was attending the rubble removing when a wall fell on my ankle and broke it :) yes thank God on everything let us be positive no matter what.
the picture is of the Explosion and the port taken from the roof of my building where i live in the last floor (4th).

Thank you all and God bless you,

Elie Ghossoub

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
