This tiny little place of earth that is too small to appear on most of maps is loudly and frequently appearing in the most important news media of the world, and mostly for the good news.
The Christmas tree of the historic city of Byblos, or Jbeil, is going to make history. It was chosen by WSJ ( Wall Street Journal) to show the most beautiful Christmas trees around the world.
Lately Glamroz posted and article taken from the ” Daily mail” online magazine, about Beirut being chosen as one of the 7 city wonders in the world. The feedback from Lebanese all over the world was mostly welcoming and positive, but we also received some negative reviews, either as comments to the post or messages to Glamroz inbox.
This will be discussed further in another post, but for those people, we tell them, yes, Lebanon is a wonder, and it is daily proven.
