BACK IN LEBANON
- “take me to your stereotypes”
At Beirut International Airport I was whisked through customs, not on the strength of any of my usual whisking connections but because I had befriended, on the plane from Dubai, Tony from Tony’s Food (“Making Doughs Our Specialty”).
Tony’s a nice friendly guy and his name obviously means something in this town – I couldn’t believe that they recognized him from his name alone, let alone that being the proprietor of a company called Tony’s Food (“Making Doughs Our Specialty”) qualifies you and your mates for special treatment.
