Great pics! I do adore those Middle Eastern places.
We were in Syria some months ago, but we didn't have time left to cross the border to fascinating Lebanon.

Great pictures there, I had no idea how European parts of Lebanon really look. I especially like the look of some of the coastal resorts. Thanks for sharing!

Does anyone know if these buildings are fairly recent builds? Not important, just curious.
