August 21, 2017

Didn't save yesterday by mistake. and now i've forgotten it.

As we were getting ready to call it a night, we switched on channel 1, which in the past had wonderfully soporific programs. But the new national channel seems to be more exciting than all the others. A documentary of injured Syrians in our local hospitals, their relationships with the staff, the terrifying events that brought them to enemy country, and the deep wounds. Then the news with a piece about how Disney films are switching back from literary Arabic to Egyptian Arabic in their dubbing. These are not the majority of programs, and I am certain the local Arabic population does not watch this channel. But it is very interesting to get to know our neighbors.
