    I'm an Arab American.

    I've never been to Lebnan but my Arabic is fairly developed. Lebanon is truly one of those places that seems like heaven on Earth(that is solely based on aesthetics and word of mouth from my parents). Inshallah I get the privilege of visiting my homeland one day. Long live...
