Here I am overlooking Nahr Ibrahim itself, a beautiful river meandering toward the Mediterranean. It's flowing strong right now, fed by melting snow from Lebanon's gorgeous mountains.
Also on the day's agenda:
A fantastic homecooked lunch from Tina's mom, lovingly made vegetarian. Hello, potatoes of perfection and fabulous fattouche!
Cotton candy and a stroll through another nearby town
Ping pong in the currently empty pool (isn't that the normal use of such a space?)
Becca climbing all over a shut-down railroad bridge
Exploration of some other fantastic ruins
A healthy dose of just plain silliness
And, of course, a bit of treehugging :)
It's been a great addition to fieldwork, the chance to see different parts of the country and experience homelife a bit. Thanks to my MAP mates for being such amazing hosts!!
