Well the Airline Tickets and Passports are ready; you and I are travelling to the No. one travel destination for 2009 according to the New York Times. It's not a short trip; we are crossing the Atlantic Ocean. I know your fear and what you are thinking: how can you arrange such a long trip and be in the air and trust the airline companies???? Well we have to trust in God, and have faith that we are going to enjoy a nice vacation, thank the captain and the flight crew for a nice and smooth trip.
We are landing in a beautiful place, with nice blue beaches awaiting us, and high White Mountains welcoming us as soon as the flight enters the Lebanese Sky.....
Welcome to Lebanon... Land of Milk and Honey , as the Bible Described it.
Lebnan, Le-b-nan that means the White Mountain, once called "The pearl of the Middle East,” is bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, Israel, and Syria. At one time or another Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians,Greeks, Arabs, European Crusaders, Ottomans, and French all ruled and had influence over the land and its cuisine. The Cuisine of this Ancient Land is diverse and steeped in history; Lebanon is a culinary and cultural Crossroads. Lebanon is located on the Eastern most shore of the Mediterranean in the Fertile Crescent, where Western Civilization is said to have begun. Both the Eastern and Western influences in its cookery are apparent. It combines the sophistication of European Cuisine with the excitement of Eastern Spices.
