On Saturday night we headed out to Luna Park on the Corniche, a funfair where they were holding the launch party for Shankabook, an interactive web-based TV series filmed in and around Beirut (www.shankaboot.com). It's the world's first web-based Arab drama series and is produced in association with the BBC World Service Trust. It has an awesome musical score, and some of the artists that feature on the soundtrack were there to perform on the night, under the crazy psychedelic colours of the ferris wheel. Even Teta, the old granny from the series (she really is a granny), made an appearance to tell everyone where the bar was.
Teta points out the bar.
