#565 Ali from Lebanon

This week we’re bringing you another feature from our partnership with the podcast ‘177 Nations of Tasmania’ by Mark Thomson.

This week’s story belongs to Ali from Lebanon. Ali spent his childhood in Beirut, a city that was once a pearl of the SWANA region torn apart by violence. However, it wasn’t the war but a series of unexpected events that led Ali all the way to the other side of the world to raise a family in Tasmania…

Ali paints a vivid picture of Beirut in the 1980s and the changing fortunes of Lebanon in the 20th century.
