Lebanon: Why Everyone Should Visit

“I got into the Beirut Arabic Language program! I’m going to go to Beirut for the summer!” I messaged my mom as soon as I got my acceptance letter to the American University in Beirut. She wasn’t thrilled. When I first told her I was applying for immersion Arabic language programs, she quietly rooted for me to go to Jordan or stay in the United States, both countries holding reputations as being “safe.” Growing up in the small town of Hillsborough, NC, the Middle East seemed scary and violent from the media. However, in Lebanon I never felt out of place or in danger. While Lebanon has it’s share of problems,  the area of Beirut I lived in safer than the area in Chicago I had lived the last year. Like any country, there are areas that one should avoid.

Lebanon: visit to Beirut and Byblos

My last Christmas was spent in Lebanon -a country, where contradictions coexist side by side. We spent most of the time in Beirut, but we also visited  Byblos  (Jbeil).  It was my first visit to the country, still I had to say that some expectations were formed in my head, mostly by the media. My advice to you is getting rid of stereotypes because only then you will be truly open to discoveries. So, let’s start our journey to Lebanon, shall we?
