last saturday, 27 feb. 2010, was the launching event for my second children's illustration book: "حلتبيس حلتبيس، أشعار من سمسم وخيار". This time it s a poetry book for children; a new adventure with the author Rania Zaghir published by al khayyat al saghir.
we were supposed to celebrate in the streets of Hamra, Beirut, facing a pub called Dany's. it was raining, so we moved inside, to a small warm room in Dany's. i was tired, coming back from a looong meeting and an animation workshop @ Zico house. i forgot all my hectic day when i saw Tania Saleh and her lovely kids Karim & Tarek sitting in the pub listening to the amazing Mashrou3 Leila rehearsing on the new songs they composed based on the poems of the book. i love this band, and hearing them singing the text inside the new book was a beautiful experience ! Thanks Mashrou3 Leila !
shway shway, the place became more and more crowded till it was filled with lovely people and one more time, love was in the air, Cucumbers and sesame as well :) Thanks for all the beautiful people who attended the event, who called and sent messages and for my friends in Egypt, Jordan... you are a huge support ! i love u all.
lovely band Mashrou3 Leila
