Slate Well-Traveled in Lebanon

This week Slate has been running a well-done well-traveled series on, of all places, Lebanon. I think it’s a good bet that most people, not to mentoin most Americans, probably do not know that Lebanon has a storied past as one of the finest vacation spots in the world. Sadly, what it is known for mostly these days is bombings, death, fanaticism and all the fun stuff we have come to associate these days with the Mid East overall. Not that you’re going to want to book your ticket today and/or strap on your suicide bomb belt, but the article adds some fine insight into what makes Lebanon a good tourist spot after all.
