One of my friends in lab brought me a gift from Lebanon.
There is a large Lebanese community in Belgium, and two of my friends in lab have invited me to Lebanese events to learn more about their culture. The food is amazing and I learned a Dabke dance, a dope traditional lebanese dance.
Fittingly, she got this keychain made for me with the Lebanese flag on one side and my name “Chiamaka” written in Arabic on the other side.
Such a beautiful and heartwarming gift :-). I love thoughtful and sentimental presents.
My lab is the best!
