Reasons to be cheerful

Refugees from the Lebanese community in Abidjan, the recently embattled Côte d'Ivoire city, arrived back in Beirut last Thursday.  The Lebanese have been in Côte d'Ivoire since the late 1800s and I can only imagine how hard it must be to leave your entire life behind you; there were some truly moving moments as families were reunited. Still, worried for their loved ones or not,  the guys waiting soon reverted to type as a MEA hostess (above) made her way out of the arrivals hall.
