They'd been friends for 10 years at the time, and met up in the Summer of 2012 in Beirut.
The Summer of 2012 in Lebanon looked like:
- Burned wheels on highways and political turmoil
- A refugee crisis
- The worst touristic summer since 1946 because of the ban on tourists
A friend of theirs had just come back from Brazil with a colorful wish bracelet.
Someone they both love suggested they make a wish bracelet for Lebanon too.
Legend goes, you put it around your wrist, you make 3 knots and a wish. When the bracelet falls off, the wish comes true.
They were to call it: Live Love Beirut.
