Exploration in Fraydees

A trip to Fraydees will not be complete if we don't go on a mini exploration journey. So here we were on 13 April 2008. The green, the bloom, the fresh air. Btw, Fraydees is in the Barrouk mountains. It shares the same municipality with the Barrouk village and opposite the Chouf Cedars forest:

Trip to Zahle

On the 24th of March, we went to Zahle, we passed by our friends the Najjars, they have a beautiful garden, and of course we had to discover how, what and why things are the way they are in the garden. Check out these exploration photos of me and my bro Rawad:

Christmas 2007

These photos and the ones in the coming posts should have been up a very loooong time ago. Blame the procrastination on perfectionism and on any other person or group or country but me :-). The following are photos of some of my friends who attended the Christmas celebration. Here we were receiving gifts from Santa:

My brother, Rawad-Akkad's second encounter with Santa, on the first, he was too small to even know what was going on.

My cousin Layan Makarem, happy with her gifts heheheee...

My cousin Bissan Bashir, also happy with Santa's gift ...

Here is my best friend, Shadi Ahmadie and his brother Sary...


Oh this is nothing, just a Christmas tree break :-)

This is my cousin, Rayan, dont mind the look, he was very happy...

Well, you know, that's me there, yeh I know who this santa really is, he doesn't fool me one bit...

My cousin Nabil and also my play station tutor.
