ABOUT LEBANONLebanon, officially the Republic of Lebanon, is a country on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south. Lebanon's location at the crossroads of the Mediterranean Basin and the Arabian hinterland has dictated its rich history, and shaped a cultural identity of religious and ethnic diversity. The earliest evidence of civilization in Lebanon dates back more than 7,000 years—predating recorded history.

Pigeon's Rock, Beirut
Also known as the Rock of Raouché, the Pigeon`s Rock in Beirut, Lebanon is a stellar destination for locals and tourists alike. This photo was taken from the popular seaside walkway called the Corniche. With so many folks on cell phones and roller blades, the Corniche reminded me more of Miami than the Middle East."
