Beirut (without the ping pong balls)

When I was a kid, the first thing that came to mind when someone mentioned Beirut was the image of a very dangerous, war-infested place. After all, from 1975 to 1990, civil war ravaged Lebanon and claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. I honestly never saw myself stepping foot on Lebanese soil.

Fast forward to 2011….

The end of Ramadan was marked by Eid – a celebration in Islam. Not to mention, it brought with it a 5-day weekend! So to take advantage of this free time, Meg and I booked a last minute trip to Beirut, Lebanon. Each of us have coworkers who raved about the renaissance of the small middle eastern country so we decided, why not?

The result – we are so glad we did. What a beautiful, historic country!
