Saturday in Beirut: A Day of Lebanese Culture
We had a great Saturday beimg tourists. We visited the National Museum, the Hariri Mosque (above) named after Labanon's slain prime minister, and St. George's Greek Orthodox Church, dating from the mid 1700's. We also saw Roman ruins and attended a two hour Christian high school graduation ceremony (in Arabic) that ended with quite a fireworks display! They didn't do that at Brownfield (TX) High School.
