Nice to be back

I am really enjoying reconnecting with Lebanon. Of greatest surprise to me are the smells. At times it seems like this must be how animals see the world. When I first arrived, I couldn't quite place it, but I later understood that I was smelling the hint of the sea.

Now I am enjoying the changes that come with immersing in a different culture. Olives for breakfast and ubiquitous taxi drivers. I'm impressed by how far Beirut has come in the last two years. Parking meters with attendants, new construction all over the place, the place has come a long way.
