We come back after a two-weeks interruption. Today's Badael page is great: Muhammad muhsin wrote a big article on the "orchards of Dahiyeh" (the southern suburbs) which have been eaten by cement and asphalt, and another on the street names of Dahiyeh and their agricultural connotations. My editorial "'saving face" is about the water allocation between the Palestinians and the usurpers in occupied Palestine. And a small article on tayyoun, a wild plant from Lebanon.
