Below is a view of the living area from the loft. Poor Jason searched tirelessly for soccer on our TV that had endless satellite channels, but sadly all they were showing was cricket and volleyball of all things. He was disappointed since Boxing Day is such a big day for Premiere League soccer.
They came and fixed a fire in our fireplace for us each night and the first night we made s'mores. Not quite up to American standards as we had to use some sort of Lebanese cookie as a substitute for graham crackers, and the only marshmallows I could find were pink and tasted a little odd, but the kids loved it and didn't know the difference.
Like I said, from our place, it's about another 20 minute drive up to the top of the mountains to a village called Mzaar where all of the ski slopes are. This year there wasn't enough snow to ski as you can tell, but it was still beautiful and we had tons of fun sledding on the ski slopes.

Lebanon's mountains are so majestic and beautiful.
