The apartment we saw yesterday was HORRIBLE! The agents picked us up from the hotel and took us to this hideous neighbourhood where we checked out the place. We answered them on the spot: “No, thanks. Next!”

The hunt continues as we are seeing another one this evening.

I filled in a vacation form this morning asking for few days off during the Muslim eid — which is normally a public holiday. As a journalist, I ‘m deprived of any public holiday as the news must go on. Anway, the desired destination is Lebanon to visit my sister and her family. I’m not sure if my employers would let me go as I have been working here for two months only…we shall see!
