the way people do in Europe (don’t know much about Europe), Canada or the States in Libya is to build castles in the air. If the line doesn’t make sense, learn to read my writing. Here on Tumblr I dictate my own grammar. I’m writing for no one really, so might as well experiment. :)
Anyway what I want to say is if you plan to visit or live in Libya and expect to have the same life style…sorry to break it to you, but it just doesn’t work like that. Unless your entertainment and pastimes are limited to motion pictures and a bunch of sit down nothings then prepare for a life of “I’m hella bored”.
In Libya you need your “out of the box” entertainment. It’s the only way to really enjoy the time you spend living there. That, or you can buy bootlegged films from the Dahra shops. There are a few theatre places here and there but…they suck (that’s all I’ll say).
Libya is a lot less like “civilized” countries. Some people like to say first world. Like we live in another? How does that work?
There are no high rise structures (oh actually we have two). We don’t have proper roads (maybe a few kms). It goes on and on. There is just so much we don’t have.
I’m thinking about it now. Maybe that’s the point? When you go to Libya you go to leave “civilization” behind you. I’m not saying you can’t enjoy yourself there. I believe that you can. You just can’t do it in a conventional manner.
I hope we Libyans learn to understand this. I pray we remove the perception that civilization is to carbon copy the West or the East.
What civilization is is another post.
