We went to lebanon this past weekend. We had fun and did a lot of things in a very short period of time. It was quick but we needed such a getaway. Below you’ll see 20+ random pictures I took while I was there.

The weather wasn’t that great, it was hot and humid the whole day, except for late at night when it turned acceptable. But still the humidity was prevailing the whole weeked. However at Bhamdoun where we stayed the weather was 180 degrees different, it was cool and breezy.

Grace deeb. I wouldn’t have known her if it weren’t for my friends.

Uncle Deek. You’ve got to pass by and try their chay 7aleeb, tea with milk, it’s very good. All you need to do is honk and a guy would take your order. It’s by the sea. I think it’s somewhere near hardrock.

AlHamra street.


Big Apples

Enormous peaches

Gigantic Tomatoes

Ahmad Ouny Al Halab, The best place to buy lebanese / arabic sweets.

Al Gamayze area

Wataniya Airways rocks in every single way. From their Flight Attendants to Legroom in economy class.. it was a great flight.
