Ana is a helpful sister.

If you know anything from this blog, you know that Ana is a super helpful big sister.

And I like to help in return.

I’d like to submit evidence that I can be helpful too!

And find some shade around the back fence to enjoy lunch – this time Rafa did sit still, because he ate every crumb of lunch watching skateboarders performing tricks off the car park wall

Because there were some skateboarders filming each other doing tricks, which he enjoyed as much as the dancers - and led to a special demonstration hybrid of skateboard tricks and traditional Lebanese dance.

After lunch he gave us a special demonstration hybrid of skateboard tricks and traditional Lebanese dance.  We think he might be onto something!
