PhotoJournal And Update From Lebanon

Greetings from the intensely hot and humid Lebanon; a longer update is forthcoming, but for now here are a slew of photographs I took during while in my native south Lebanon and in el Dahye, the southern district of Beirut:

Side-note: The Maroun el-Ras tourist attraction is less than 1 mile from the border with occupied Palestine. It features a dining area, picnic area and paintball field. Also there is a replica of the Dome of the Rock (Masjid Qubbat As-Sakhrah), the beloved Muslim place of worship located in Jerusalem, on the premises.

    • The tourist attraction in Maroun el-Ras was funded, in part, by Iran; therein it is no surprise that Iranian flags are seen.
