Preparing to Fire (Bazbina, Lebanon)

17 May 2009 - Bazbina, Lebanon.

Nassib pulled over on our road trip and taught us how to fire the rifles he keeps in the trunk...just in case we happened upon Hezbollah or other rogue militias in the mountains. Just kidding. He only had one gun and it was for bird hunting, which he did while we were there. Alyssa and I agreed the quote of the day was when we were having ice cream cones and Nassib casually said, "remind me to get the gun out of the car before we get to the military checkpoint." Of course we forgot to remind him, but he remembered himself and we made it through just fine.
