Watching Beirut die | Salon Life: “A Lebanon I never got to know, a Beirut I didn’t get to show the world disappears slowly over the horizon — a beautiful dream turned nightmare.”

I love Bourdain, think he is very candid and a great Chef. If you have time read this good account of these last few weeks. Must have been crazy, my sister is planning on traveling to Lebanon soon to visit the grave of her recently departed husband.

I saw the fireworks today that the Lebanese people set off in the streets as they returned to their homes. At what price one has to ask, for God only knows what is going to happen in to this area.
