Lebanon in 26 Hrs

Landed in Lebanon and the weather was a cool 28 Degrees, I could hear people complain that its a little warm.

Meeting at 9 am and was done late the afternoon, had to go back to the hotel and check out and take off to the airport so I wouldn’t be late. I was hungry as hell and all I could think off is food, luckily I managed to eat on the flight.
