1) Lebanon is the most beautiful country in the world. Many call it the Europe of the Middle-East. It is the only place I know where you can go skiing and swim in a real beach on the same day.
Sadly, there have been many religious and ethnic wars which have destroyed the country over and over. But, we always end up rebuilding it to be more beautiful than ever.
2) Lebanese are always capable of knowing each other's origins for some reason.
3)Our women always fight over who should wash the dishes while the men discuss politics.
4) We are the inventors of Frarabic (French Arabic), which I also like to call French Tourettes. Sometimes, when you can't find a word in arabic, you involuntarily replace it with a French word (Sometimes English) while replacing the "P" sounds with "B" sounds.
5) Overly polite amogst each other, not always polite amogst others.
6) It takes us about an hour to say good-bye (Applies to all arabs)
7) Our women have natural beauty. Despite their hairy bodies, they wax often so it does not show.
8) Ever try Kibbi Nayi, Tabbouleh, Fattoush or Hommous? If you did, you would swear off all fast food forever.
9) God save Lebanon!
