Beirut, Lebanon

Photo of Beirut, Lebanon

The contrasts begin with a something the Lebanese are very proud of; they boast about one of their most popular contrasts – the climate. I’ve had numerous people tell me how Lebanon is the only country where you can go ski in the morning and go to the beach in the afternoon. Yes, there are mountains here. And yes, you can ski on them. It is a pretty amazing fact – especially coming from America where our mountains, sea, and climates are divided be great distances. But this contrast is just the beginning.
