The Cedars of Lebanon

Yesterday qualified as a very good day.

Raneem is a dear friend from my days in Edinburgh - while I was doing my LLM in International Law as a Marshall Scholar, she was doing an MSc in Anthropology as a Chevening Scholar. We met at a dinner hosted by the Scholarship Office and quickly clicked.

Two years later, Raneem is back in her home country...and here I am! She's been showing me around, helping me do basic errands in Beirut. And, on the weekends, driving me into the mountains for glorious views.

Hello to the cedars of Lebanon! A truly incredible privilege to be amongst these trees, surrounded by the power of nature and history. The smell of cedar is truly amongst the world's finest.
