I want to tell you how much I have enjoyed this blog on Iran. It is a wonderful blog that is educational and eye-opening. I live in canada and have met many Iranians and you have confirmed how warm I know these people to be. Excellent work. My first time at blogging is located at www.mytb.org/whirl-traveller

Sorry we were a bit slow getting back to. It we were in Iran with scratchy wifi and this site was blocked. Won't be home for Chrissy, I think we'll be in Sri Lanka. Looks like curry for Chrissy din din.

Merry Christmas
A bit slow responding. Sorry but this blog site was blocked in Iran. It must be deemed evil. How's the new job and say hi to Mary and Imogen. Have a safe, if cold, Christmas.

Nice to know you are still tuning in.
Sorry for the tardy reply, this site was blocked in Iran. Mr Ahmadinajad must have deemed it evil. Thanks again for the compliment.

Reminiscing again but a little green with envy!
Very interested to read your assessment! I would love to have tagged Lebanon onto our recent trip but would not go without a group even though \i lived there during the civil war. You probably have seen much more than I ever could--we couldn't even go to the Centre of Beirut! LOve your writing and enjoy your great photos! Thanks . . .

Nice to hear from you
Very nice to get your feedback and we did have our eyes out for you in Istanbul but what are the odds on that. I hope we weren't too negative on Lebanon. Kep in touch and give our regards to Lisle.

Great reminiscing . . .
\lisle and \i have just returned from Turkey, Israel & Greece. \just loved reading this section on \istanbul. I was last in Turkey in 1993 so I observed huge changes everywhere! Lise and \i stayed in Sultanahmet at \international Youth Hostel [as I did 20 yrs. ago] but then that part of S'ahmet wasn't alive--wow what a difference. a week later we went to Taksim to meet up with a group with whom we travelled further afield and the service in the hotel was appalling--give me the Youth Hostel any day. Enough said . . . I will read on. Cheeers, Norma [Lisa Sanasi's step mum-in-law]

We are your biggest fans
We are on the road so we have not written to you lately but love your adventure. Lebanon is one of the places we truly must see so we are reading along closely. Soon we follow in your foot steps and head to Cuba. Hopefully, we will share your enthusiasm and see as many wonderful things as you did. Hopefully, you will follow us on that adventure.

Enjoy
We seem to be crossing paths all year. You will love Cuba, almost guaranteed

I read it and I loved it!
"Ever heard a Parisian call their city the Beirut of the north?" I think I spit my coffee across my keyboard when I read that! Hilarious!!!!

Thanks
I hope I wasn't too negative

Yeatsey can't believe you didn't enjoy Lebanon, it's easy to navigate as you walk the streets - turn left at the machine gun emplacement, right at the tank and you're there. The Gemmayze district ranks up there with one of the best bar strips that I've stumbled around. But I do have fond memories of the taxi driver in the battered merc trying to find the said nightclub district...... nothing like an unguided tour of Beirut.

Rain
It didn't help that it pissed down rain for 5 days
14th November 2012

LMAO Loved it
Great blog..kinda how i imagine Lebanon to be..and i have a lebanese mother who insists aunty so and so loved it..lots of laughs thanks.
14th November 2012

Thanks
A bit over the top negative but that's better than lip service
14th November 2012

Wow! I'd love to go to the Lebanon.
I didn't know it is safe enough to go there. It must be, since you are there. I am about to read this blog now, so I can have more of an idea about your opinions about being safe there. Hopefully, I will then put it on my travel list, and have something to say about it, from personal experience. :)
14th November 2012

It's plenty safe but ......
I dont know if I would recommend it without some reservations
13th November 2012

Fooly Sick
Wow, disappointing report from Beirut. I was wandering if you got anywhere near the coast line and if there was anything redeeming about it. See you soon
14th November 2012

Coastline
If you want coastline, stay where you are, it's far nicer
