    Church of Jounieh

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an out side view to the Mother of God Church in Jounieh.
    Very beautiful church and in a very beautiful location!
    I am not religious but some how some way I like all the holly places, of any religion.
    Paradox huh!

    The nice seller of Aleppo Pistachios “that’s what we call it in all the Arabian countries”, but he has in his little chariot Bananas and Grapes and Peaches.
    That is how he is making his little business much successful

    Those guys and Girls where shouting and yelling when they saw me photographing this street of the shops, they were so enthusiastic to be captured in my Digital camera!
    Hee hee hee I won’t disappoint a bunch of kind young people!
    So I took this photo.
    Actually in Tripoli the young population is much bigger than the old one, which is typical for the whole Middle East!
    But in some Cities like Tripoli it is very clear, and you’ll have the impression it is a city for the youth.

    Photo Please!

    Street

    The main street of the centre down town of Zahle!
    It is a continuing way to the long street of the shops.
    But with the square yard and the clock and fountain in it, but surrounded also by houses and shops and magazines.

    And some where in the Eastern part of the city of Zahle there are streets and areas of Luxury.
    Hotels near the rich new modern region with the beautiful view of the red breaks ceiling!
    Swimming pools and so!
    It is really a beautiful city.

    Buildings

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just like in Jbail, Zahle has the 2 kinds of styles of buildings: the old and modern!
    But a moment of difference between the 2 cities is that Zahle has much more old buildings and even sometimes ancient houses and buildings!
    And that is what most of the tourists like to see.

    The Bardouni River is the famous river of all the region of Bekaa and it is running and passing through Zahle and making it another beautiful green city in Lebanon!
    Also people and tourists enjoy the beautiful views near the River in the cafés and restaurants placed on the River side.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oh I have to tell and assure that I liked the chicks of Zahle, they are really very sexy.
    Hee hee more even than the Beirut chicks!!!
    Yeah why not it happens that a small city has more beauties than the main capital,
    And that is my opinion after I saw the chicks of Lebanon and compared them!
    Yeah zahle’s chicks are really something.

    Wow Man! :-)

    Ruins

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also have to mention the war between Israel and Lebanon!
    It left ruins stronger than those of the Civil war!
    Because of the Air bombers!
    Now there are no clues as they reconstructed those much damaged buildings!
    Prying for the peace on the Middle East!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lebanon is blessed with a diversity of religions, which makes it a unique place. My tip which applies to most countries is ' Avoid discussing politics & religion'. I always thought that religion is between you & whom you worship and not between you & others. As for politics, I guess no one is right or we'd be living in a more peaceful world.
