A trip to the Cedars – I

north lebanon cedars

To be continued tomorrow! (I have tons and tons of work these days, so will post bit by bit rather than not posting at all…)

I consider myself very lucky to have a friend like Nadine and I wish her the best for the year to come in Montreal. Now it’s back to reality with the start of another working week… Good thing we have music to give us back the good memories. We listened to this during our road trip, and I, to  certain extent, identify with the lyrics.

Enjoy, and most importantly, be yourself––no matter what they say! ♫ 😉

    This song is the favorite song of one of our friends. We always make fun of him for that, plus he sings it as if it is teh most romantic song ever 🙂

      You meant Sting’s song or the ‘Wardeh” song?

    Hey Maya!
    Can’t wait for the next episode of your Cedars adventure!

    One small note though: the infamous song listed above is for Mohamad Iskandar 🙂
    Fares Karam’s “hits” include ‘El Tannoura’ among others 😀
