Lebanon took a turn in the latter part of November at the embassy series.
Inside, the visitor found a great deal of information on the country, and items of culture on display. I was surprised to find out the country has wineries- one of them was represented and was doing wine tasting. I tend to associate Lebanon as a desert country, but places like the Bekaa Valley are ideal for vineyards, and have been used for such for thousands of years. The red wine appealed to me.
This pairing of photographs particularly caught my eye.
The stage had been shifted for this event from its usual spot in the building, and a documentary film on the country was playing while I was here.
Here are more photographs from Lebanon. The last one, with performers amid the ancient ruins, really stood out.
