  1. That is terrific ! It had many facts about Lebanon that I didn’t even know about which makes me even more proud of being Lebanese! Keep the hard work and good luck in your senior year Maloka !


  2. This is a really nice blog, I’m just curious, are the Women in the doctors’ photo really Lebanese? I was doing some research and I found that picture appearing on almost every page on the web pertaining to doctors so I’m not sure if the female doctors on the photo you posted are really Lebanese. Plus, do you happen to know what is the original website that first posted up that picture before it was used by all the other websites? I am also interested about the picture that shows little Lebanese boys and girls in a classroom. I happened to really like that picture, do you know where I can find a bigger picture and or that picture with a high resolution?
