A night in Achrafieh

I’ve always wanted to see Safa WFC challenge on the highest level and on my last visit I couldn’t attend much games because of the situation. So this chance might not come again and I have to take it.

On the other hand i had a very busy schedule three trips in one weekend. One got cancelled so now I have two back to back trips!! Meaning I’ll get off the plan and get on another in less than 5 hours. Ohh yes I forgot to tell you that I’ve been covering the news from everyone wanting to surprise the team. As much as Nour Ghadban insisted on me coming as much as I tried to lie about it and made excuses not come.

Just after booking my airlines and organizing my logistics coronavirus started spreading which will make it so hard to break the news to my parents and tell them I’m flying to Beirut for a night before flying to Doha for a week. 

For the first time in my life I travel and try to hide from everyone. I wanna see no body talk to nobody I just wanna arrive safely spend a night without anyone noticing and attend the game tomorrow. Thank god the plan was perfect. A night in Achrafieh with only five people knowing I’ll be in Beirut. 

The next morning the world was so quite and all I’m thinking about is a win today and surprise the whole squad with my appearance. I can write a book on how I was welcomed by everyone and how all of them were shocked to see me. But nothing will ever be better than their performance that day and defeating the champions of Lebanon for the first time in years.

23rd of February will always be special.
