10 ways to write a condescending, orientalist travel article, by @olireports

Insert (all direct quotes):

1) hairy-chested men
2) Hezbollah, a Lebanese militant group fighting in Syria
3) French-style beautiful old buildings, although bullets and shrapnel pockmark many
4) ogling motor-yachts
5) of course, hummus
6) a rundown but buzzing neighborhood
7) where the prophet Jonah was said to have landed when he was spat out of a whale
8) It’s more authentic
9) a slick and bizarre display of guerrilla tactics and weaponry by the movement, designated “terrorist” by the United States.
10) unexploded ordnance has been spotted
