Beirut’s looking prreetttty nice right now…

November 23, 2010

Yeah, so I’m sick of Lansdale, PA. So I started to dream and since I’m into all things hummus and my Mediterranean restaurant friends are from Lebanon, I started to think that Beirut would be the place to go. 

Maybe all those newspaper articles about the Iraq War have gotten to me because I read and care more about the Middle East now then when Bush was in office.  Beirut, Lebanon is known as the Paris of the Middle East, according to Wadih of Oasis.  However, like Iraq, they had some troubles, particularly a civil war from 1982 to 1990. 

However, I still want to go to Beirut because not only did The New York Times rate it as the top place to visit in 2009, but Beirut now has a redesigned city center, marina, pubs, nightlife districts, and also hundreds of art galleries. 

Maybe, dreamer that I am, I could go to the Middle East! I just applied to the tourism job sight, so who knows, I could be there next summer!
