Visit mostly the mountainside and Byblos. Went to the underground river, so beautiful. The food is one of the best foods i have ever had. Europe imo seems depressing. I have been there and always cant wait to go home.
Yes i would visit Lebanon in a heartbeat. Lovely people, culture and the best food…what more can i ask for! This sort of racism also does exist in the richer middle east, i. Some of it is covert and some if it is in your face.
Well written post indeed. I am Indian guy who often travels to Lebanon for projects and some people assume that I am some blue collared worker. As a matter of fact I have had some harsh treatments handed over to me while predominantly my experience has been great. At first, i thought it was quite funny, but the last part really brings out how most Lebanese people feel. Thank you for this amazing article. Sometimes i feel guilty i have disconnected so much from my country since i came to the US, but by reading your article, you just read my mind and made my point.
There is no need to be guilty because unfortunately , this country has lost all what made it one day, a glorious one. I liked the article, I liked the honesty of it.

Kris, I am Australian, my ancestors arrived here and settled in Williamstown, Victoria, with the very first white people to settle there.
Williamstown is now a suburb of Melbourne, yet despite what seems to have been your negative experience with some Australians, my absolute best, and most amazing friend in the world, is a girl of Lebanese decent. My beautifully hearted friend is the first generation Australian of her Family, yet I can assure you, as an Australian, I have never, not ever, looked down upon her or any of her relatives, of which there are now thousands living here in Australia.
Oh and if I do look at my amazing friend, I find I most often look up to her, because she is an inspirational, good living, self respecting girl, whose morally flawless life I respect more than anyone I have ever known in my almost 70 years on this planet. Please the Lebanese stereotype page is very bad. I am Lebanese and not everything is true Please change it because it gives very bad image about Lebano. Hat is not true Thank you.
Yes we do have lots of bad things going on in our country. Why not talking about the accomplishments we made? Why not talking about our beautiful traditions and legacies? Why not talking about the qualities that Lebanese are known for? Their eternal love for the life?
And that each night is spent in an unique way? But of course not. You should come and tear down our beautiful truth and hide it behind all that negativity. Hi Xelya, I wish I could see Lebanon and its citizens through your eyes. I love your optimism and I do encourage you to share more of your thoughts here. Let the world hear our story from your perspective. Hey, I loved your article and most of the comments. I have a very weird relation with Lebanon. I am Romanian, so most guys as soon as they hear my nationality automatically place me in a certain category.
Knowing the language helped a lot in understanding the culture and getting closer to people. What I love about Lebanon? Well anyway I lived in so many countries that I am used to loving the people with their good and bad sides.
The bad sides that one should expect in Lebanon: Many of them are real charmers, but a bit immature. However, I am trying my best not to place all of them in the same category. The pressures put on them by the society and the family for sure places a part, they must have a house, car, money for the perfect wedding, help the rest of the family, all this with little employment opportunities.
Then they marry someone after few months of dating and as the passion runs out they are left miserable. Wrote a bit too much, but I could talk about Lebanon for hours: I have a question for you actually. I mean, Bosnian girls are pretty too, but Lebanese ones..

Dear Claudia, You have completely overreacted to my comments. You cannot change nature. So what happened to all the bra burners, the hairy arm pits? James Balan on August 24, at 8: MantisShrimp on August 25, at 1: The acceptance of inter-racial or out of religion marriages varies greatly based on my factors: Once you marry someone from a different religion or a different race, you put your self and your parents in a position of justification Religion: I find Christians to be the most open minded in terms of marital issues, followed by Muslims and finally Druze since minorities hold on closer to each other and find it harder to welcome other religions or races to their families, possibly a self defense mechanism?
