This morning, I woke up to the news that Beirut Marathon has been cancelled after the last week of anti-government street protests. Given what is currently going on in Lebanon and its neighbouring countries, a marathon is of course rather secondary but still the race was a symbol of normality amidst all the regional turbulence.

For the moment, the Swedish Foreign Ministry is not advising against travelling to Beirut which means that, unless the situation deteriorates further, Ally and I are still good to go. Especially in a time like this, it simply feels important not to cancel.
