Ce n'est qu'un au revoir!

That was the theme of the Farewell Reception for the Netherlands Embassy's Commercial Attache, Mr. Tarek Ouerghi, and his lovely wife, Amale, jointly hosted by the Embassy and the LDBA on Wednesday, the 18th of February, 2015, at the Metropolitan Palace Hotel in Sinn el fil.

Decorated by H.M. King Willem-Alexander, via the Netherlands Ambassador, H.E. Hester Somsen, for years and years of services, for loyalty and dedication; presented a shield of appreciation by the LDBA; unanimously proclaimed as a life-time Honorary President of the LDBA... yet all that pales in comparison to the love and affection of all those who know him, who worked with him, who travelled with him, who hiked with him, and... who hit the jazz clubs with him.

What more proof of that affection than the refreshing sight of the first Netherlands Ambassador to Lebanon after the war, H.E. Ron Mollinger (now retired), who, along with Tarek, had reestablished the Beirut Embassy back in 1995, travelling all the way to Lebanon to be at Tarek's Farewell event, secretly carrying the medal in his pocket...

Tot ziens Tarek and Amale. We'll see you very soon in Holland in May. And why not in Tunis, and back in Lebanon on your next vacation.

We all love you BARSHA!
