I Can't Believable
Greetings from an internet cafe in Lebanon! With a week vacation from work, Lillie and I thought it would be a great idea to book last minute tickets to Beirut. We've spend the past two days exploring Beirut and the surrounding areas. I feel like I'm in Bizarro Middle East. Everyone looks and speaks Arabic (albeit nearly impossible to understand) and there's lots of shawarma and fruit stands, but there are also things like recycling bins and trash cans on the street, barely any stray animals, and women wearing tank tops and short skirts and not getting harassed. I don't understand. I'll post lots of stories and pictures once I'm back (if I ever convince myself to return to Cairo).
