On one, extremely hot, summer day, I visited a house of my aunty.  The Karakala family were relaxing in a courtyard.  It seemed to me, this was a pocket of family love and happiness.  As the adults were hiding from the sun, the children started playing with water – there was a stream running near their house, but no place to swim in town.  Before long, their laughter and playfulness affected us all, and the whole family joined in their water fight.  Baalbek, Lebanon.
