Lebanon is terrific.
After Syria and Iran making it to a place like Beiruit is a bit of a step into the future and the western world.
Fancy cars, beautiful women, coffee shops, bars, facebook, WIFI access and an overall super friendly bunch of people.
What more could you want?
How’s about tanks and soldiers? Got em too!
The city is very modern but still has a lot of building littered with bullet holes from fighting is years gone by.
I only spent a few days there but I could have easily stuck around for much longer.
We headed up to Tripoli for a night and then to Zahle for some wine tasting and then to Balbek to check out the amazing ruins. A definite must see.
