Getting to Qana from Tyre (Sour) is incredibly easy... yet it took us a long while to figure it out. Anyway any car that slows down by you and blows its horn twice is a service taxi - in case you are in doubt check that the license plate is red. Then just hop in the car and tell the driver where you want to go. He'll take you there for a very low price. To Qana it costs about 1000 Lebanese pounds to go there. You can also get a return trip + waiting time for about 12000 Lebanese pounds, which I guess is well worthy, as we did not see other service taxis when there

Favorite thing: Qana is a shiite village in the south of Lebanon, not too far from the Israeli border, set among lovely green valleys and mountains. It's supposed to be the place where Jesus performed his first miracle: converting water into wine at a wedding.
Fondest memory: Qana is also the site of the new genocide: on 18 April 1996 the Israeli army shelled the local Fijian UN headquarters killing 106 civilians who had taken shelter in its buildings and church, and wounding 110 others. They were mostly women and children.
