Photo Friday: Zahle, Lebanon

Zahle, Lebanon

Somehow Lebanon feels like it shouldn’t be considered the Middle East – probably because of vista’s like this one. It really goes to show you that you shouldn’t make assumptions…especially when traveling! I traveled high up into the hills to capture this view of the town of Zahle. Zahle is just one of the many fascinating towns near Arcenciel in Taanayel – the organization I wrote about on Wednesday.

While volunteering, you often have time to get out and explore your surroundings. Many times the locals are excited to show you their home and lord knows I never would have found this view on my own. Thanks to my ‘tour guide’ a local while in Zhale who was more than eager to show me around!

    Nice picture and what a dichotomy. who would have thought snow in the Middle East? I think it is interesting to learn how different places are from our expectations.
