the traveling tap four } current location } beirut, lebanon
this one was posted by my mom at my parents’ place up in the mountain in beirut

ah moussa’s castle, qalaat moussa. when we visited beirut a few years ago my son yousef loved this place the best. we had planned to go again together, just him and me as not to rush through. but we never did. it’s nice to see my girls were there. thanks, amina, for this shot
They’re so adventurous! :)
They can be quite crazy. One thing about them, they never say no. I’m afraid it’s going to get them into big trouble one day.
Oh, and I love the one at Mousa’s castle! When I went to Lebanon I met Mousa and he signed my book — with the advice to never fall in love because it leads to heartbreak …
