... like a warm welcome. No more suspicion. No more tension. When I asked how much a visa would be if I stayed for a few weeks, the officer said, "I have an uncle in Sydney. For you? Free. You can stay for three months. Oh - and welcome to Lebanon". Within minutes our taxi continued over the mountains of Lebanon and then, there it was.

... meat with and not get your hands dirty. Sometimes, the pita comes slathered in tomato past and herbs, to add more flavour to the eating experience.
-Fruit: fruit is so abundant and succulent here, its pretty amazing. Peaches, nectarines, plums, figs, grapes, cherries, apples, pears, cactus fruit, 20 kg watermelons, pomegranate, mulberries.
