After starting my blog, I started to receive comments from Lebanese people living abroad. Some of them spent most of their lives in foreign countries; others went there only few years ago. I also noticed that most of my university colleagues are now working abroad. While some people find it sad, I believe this is Lebanon's fate. A small country with a lot of brave people.
I don't want to discuss this topic in details now, I just want to inform you about a great website created by Lebanese people. It is called the Lebanese White Pages and its web address is www.leb.org
It is a non-profit website whose only goal is to help Lebanese people in Lebanon and all over the world locate their friends.
Registration is free and they will never sell your details to advertisers. So go ahead and register now... Although the registration process is slow, I believe this site is an opportunity for helping the Lebanese immigrants locate their roots in our beloved country, and for us to locate old friends.
Also note that on Sunday night, around 19:30pm GMT or 21:30pm Beirut Time, CNN's Design 360 will be focusing on Beirut's architecture. In their preview, it appears they will feature the Beirut Central District also known as Centre-Ville and Downtown.
