This picture of the border between Lebanon and Israel/Palestine has been popping up on Lebanese blogs for the past few weeks. It’s really interesting. We’ve actually been to the border, and it really is this stark of a contrast. We have a Lebanese friend who went there (just the border, not the land, as that is illegal) back in the spring for the first time and he came back shocked at how green it is over there. Really, really interesting.
Lebanon is on the right:
