Day two in Beirut has been pretty good, though I can’t say that I’ve seen anything spectacular. I got up fairly late and decided to do some research on the computer while I had some coffee…It’s been a long time since I was able to sit back on the computer and drink a coffee so this morning I probably indulged myself a little too much. By the time that I was ready to leave the apartment it was nearly noon, a lot later than I usually head out.
The first thing I wanted to check was American University in Beirut. Like I mentioned in an earlier post it’s just one of those places that I’ve heard about and since I was here I decided that it would be nice to know first hand how it looks. The school was really nice, it seemed big and was situated right next to the sea. I don’t know much about the school, but the location was great. I just kind of wandered around for about a hour… maybe less though until I found myself down by the sea. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love water, and the Mediterranean was beautiful. There wasn’t a beach just large rocks with people laying out on them while waves came in. It was so impressive I searched for a place where I could get down to the rocks, a place where some kids were fishing, and dangled my feet into the water. The water was absolutely perfect, not like the Persian Gulf which feels like a bath, this water was perfect.
Later on I finally found a place to connect to the internet, but I had to do so many things before I could post to my blog, that by the time I was able to add some entries I just wanted to leave… so my blog is going to have to wait for a while.
