Certain views in life are simply too beautiful to describe. Lebanon surprised me in its French influences, I should have perhaps read more of the guide book. Though it was this view that captivated my heart. I live in Dubai where there is a complete lack of green natural beauty and this waterfall as a focal point of a restaurant literally gave me chills. It was chilling cold water. Watching the water drip over beautiful deep green moss and it dance into the pond below I felt closer to nature than I had for months.
Today I read that Lebanese and Israeli troops have exchanged gun fire again and I pray that those beautiful surprises that made me smile are not lost again. Life is fragile and remarkably short and war does devastating things to the natural wonders of the world, and peoples hearts.
