BO-18. Zinc. Acid. Monot St?
Definitely BO-18. That place sounds intense! Zinc also sounded good, from what I've read.
I wish I still had a connection at AUB. Can you get in if you are not visiting someone? We would like to look around as we are considering trying to have a year there on sabbatical/post doc/whatever sometime in the future. Maybe I will contact potential collegues. Everyone I know has long since graduated, even my "baby" brother's generation!
Also, there seems to be a real dearth of public beaches in Beirut. We know people in Tripoli but our days up there will probably be too packed to go. Know of anyplace we can pay to get in nearby without knowing a member? Apart from renting a $200 seaside hotel room, I mean.
PS Hey, New York isn't that bad. But it does get stinky in the summer...
