Today we visit Lebanon, with our illustrated sayings series. The illustrator Kamal Hakim explains to us the saying, سلام الملح تاتستريح salam almlih ta tis tarih.
When your guest first arrives from travel it is important to allow them to rest before harassing them with questions. When you ask a favor from a friend and they use this expression as a response it signifies that they need the necessary time to help you.
