More fashion faux-pas, The Golden Age and nutrition on Helwi Beirut’s episode 52!

Hi all!

Our episode of Helwi Beirut included interesting guests and featured some informative reports. Sami Clark, Abdo Mounzer and Petit Prince known now as “The Golden Age” were our main guests today! Abdo Mounzer is a Maestro and composer for classical and orchestral music. Petit Prince has many original songs as well as Sami Clark who has original Arabic and Western songs and won International festivals. The threee voices gathered in the new Lebanese phenomenon “The Golden Age” to bring back the memories from the golden age of music. It all started out as Abdo Mounzer’s idea to sustain music respect in Lebanon.

The only polar guide in Lebanon, Marianne Achkar was our second guest on today’s episode. Marianne Achkar has a Master in Touristic Management. She came back to Lebanon 10 years ago and began introducing the Lebanese to polar trips beginning of May 2011. Marianne Achkar explained that the perfect time for a polar trip is between July and September when the temperature is between zero and 20 degrees Celsius. Those trips are very secure and the animals you might encounter during the trip are whales, arctic foxes, morphs, seals and polar birds. People aged between seven and 77 can take part in the polar escapade!
