The sense of cigars in Lebanon | Help the Beirut people


We recorded this interview the day before the Beirut explosion heavily affecting the town and the already weak Lebanese economy. We hope the sense of cigars but, above all, the sense of safety for all Lebanese people will soon be re-established. We wish all Lebanese a strong recovery from the terrible event.
