Postcard from Lebanon

Beirut at night. A cab driver said today of Beirut: it is most beautiful at night.

Other cafes were full. This one was not.

Manoushe is my new favorite food. We’ll make some, I promise. More importantly, these are my dear, new-found cousins (more, much more, to come about that).

A hazy but beautiful view from Our Lady of Lebanon, Harissa, just north of Beirut. Such haze here all week…I’m hoping to catch the sea sparkling in the sun before I leave….

    Always thought I would one day be a golfer, have a boat and visit Lebanon.
    It appears that none of that will happen but your visit certainly helps with the later.
    Have a great time, enjoying your photos.
    Everything looks so appealing, thanks for sharing.

    Wow Maureen….

    Looks like you’re having a great time. Talk about “ORGANIC” foods — reminds me
    of Italy. The town square (Florence), the view from the hills (Rufina), the great food with friends and
    relatives… nothing better…. And don’t forget the coffee shops!!!

    Looks like you’re having the experience of a life time.
