Dude, Sweet!

My evening last night was spent at Hallab, the best sweet shop in Tripoli...

Just like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, except sadly, there was a distinct lack of oompa loompas...


We tried a couple of dishes, one that's a Palestinian specialty, which was made of cheese, and this one:

For the life of me, I couldn't work out what the brown goop was, delicious yes, but unidentifiable.

It's now the first day of a four day weekend to celebrate Eid, and today we're heading south to check out Tyre, where there are white sandy beaches (the key word being sandy, as that's a rarity in these parts!) and maybe Saidar as well. Then tonight it will be a night out in Beirut, and who knows what tomorrow will bring! There's talk of some apple picking and wine tasting in the Beq'aa valley at some point as well...think it's going to be a pretty great weekend!!
