Beirut once again was ranked one of the top fifteen cities in the world. I am here in the ‘Paris of the Middle East’ visiting my adopted Lebanese family. ? I am crazy about them and also Beirut. I keep coming back. Anthony Bourdain, bless his precious heart in heaven, said that he loved Beirut so much he almost named his daughter “Beirut.” I am so insanely lucky to have this family here. They make me feel so loved. Lebanese people know how to have a lot of fun! I am for sure the whitest girl at the pool LOL. I have spent summers in Beirut for six years of my life.
Here is a video of my drive through Beirut. I think I was singing at the end. lol
