Meeting #1

After a long journey from the UK to Lebanon, Michael arrived in Lebanon at night, he was very tired, Eyad was waiting for Michael, and was very excited to see Michael.
The flight number BA0149 from the UK to Lebanon was by via British airways was delayed for 28 min, the plane supposed to arrive at 9:30 pm Lebanese time, so Eyad had to wait a bit more at 
Beirut-Rafic Hariri International Airport.
Then we headed to Princessa Hotel in Jounieh Bay, we have chosen that area to stay as it is safe regarding UK GOV travel advice.

This photo is when we first enter our hotel room, we were very happy!

The staff were very friendly at Princessa hotel, they gave us a very unique room, which is room number 604 in the 6th floor.
The balcony was really beautiful, just a nice to drink couple of beer during night-time.
We relaxed the first night, and we were ready for the following day journey as we planned to visit our Lebanese lady (Harissa).
We enjoyed the environment together.


 

Here are some photos of the room and our bed

Here are some pictures from the "Our Lebanese Lady" took on the 3rd of May 2018.

 

The Lady is on a huge mountain, so we took a cable car "Teleferique du Liban" from the bay going up to the mountain, and then we continued walking up to the top., where the church and the lady are.
on the way back, we rested on one of the restaurants by the top of the mountain.
