Once upon a weekend we went to Qadisha Valley

by Jason

Jason in Beirut

The origin of its name comes from the Aramaic for “holy.” It has been a sacred spot for Christian monks since just a few centuries after the prophet Jesus walked on Earth.

But, who cares? It’s an incredibly beautiful green paradise buried deep in the Lebanese mountains. That’s what matters and that’s why you should go as well.

We left at 5 a.m. to drive north and catch the sunrise en route

And then we drove a bit more … quite a bit more … and reached the valley

We decided to go visit the famous Colombian monk; Dario Escobar

Dario was friendly, especially with the ladies …
