swimming or skiing? you choose…

It is often said that Beirut is the perfect location because you can “surf in the Mediterranean in the morning and snow ski the same afternoon.” While we haven’t seen any surfers, and it’s probably still a bit cold to swim (although it’s in the 70’s today!), here’s a good picture of the technical reality of that statement. The sea on the left is less than a five minute walk from our apartment, and just on the other side of the snowy mountain on the right is one of Beirut’s well-known ski resorts…. about a two hour drive from where we live.  Not too shabby, eh?
