Rani is about to move to Amsterdam and is writing an alternative travel guidebook for Tehran under the brand "Never walk a Lonely Planet". He invites me to come to a lecture in Hamra (West Beirut) on Wednesday.
He also recommends that I listen to "Jesus of the Moon" by Nick Cave.
In the evening Ely comes back and we have a strange drink that nearly burns down the bar.
This was the best way to get to know the locals, and somehow a Buenos Aires moment...
