13 April 2009 - Byblos, Lebanon Alyssa, Elly, Per and I took a taxi up to Byblos yesterday to see the souks and the ruins. This photo was taken by two nice American men, Terry and Dave, who work in Beirut training the police force. One of their wives was with them yesterday - she's visiting for just a couple of weeks. It was great to meet Americans because there aren't many tourist here these days. Terry & David told us Lebanon is on the US State Department's do-not-travel list - which I kinda figured it would be but decided not to check myself. It's such is a shame about the danger because the country is beautiful and the people are so nice and welcoming.
