After two long flights, we arrived in Beirut in one piece. Sort of. Thanks to Air France and their sub-zero air conditioning I caught a mega-cold during the first flight from Toronto to Paris. I was totally fine before boarding and within three hours transformed into That Passenger No-one Wants To Sit Next To; a sneezing feverish mess.
Luckily I’m feeling much better now, after a goodnight’s sleep and heavy medication!
Beirut looks the same and the coffee tastes even better than I remembered!
Here's the view of Beirut from my in-laws balcony with the Mediterranean Sea in the distance.
