Left Amman, Jordan, at 7:00 AM on my way to Beirut, Lebanon, and arrived around 8:00 PM — believe me, it was a very long period for a 400-mile trip. Was it really worth going 400 miles away from home? Was it worth crossing the borders of 3 countries with all their border troubles? And was it worth the time that I spent in the bus?
Well, I can say that I wouldn't hesitate to grab a chance to join such an event (create a startup "company" in about 30 hours), participate in a great weekend, be part of the community, see myself among others like me, engage more in my region, gain new experience, meet the entrepreneurs, and, even better, meet the experts! This weekend, the YallaStartup Weekend, the first startup weekend in the region... Would I miss that?
No way. This is Anas Al-Far, and I'm writing these lines right now on my way back home.
