Happy Independence Day to Lebanon and a Museum Grows in Armenia!

November 19, 2009

Although the date of Lebanon’s independence is actually November 22, the Consulate General of Lebanon in NYC will be celebrating it today, 66 years later. It’s a good thing that the event will go on as it has been cancelled in years past due to unfortunate circumstances overseas.

In other Middle/Near Eastern news, a very special someone brought my attention to this article about the Cafesjian Center for the Arts opening in Armenia. Hopefully, it will improve conditions for the country and its citizens. I haven’t been to Armenia–yet. However, I hope to someday have the opportunity to do so and will certainly be checking it out!

With Thanksgiving a week from today, I’m especially grateful for all the blessings in my life 🙂 Wishing you and yours a happy one in advance!

Tabouli wishes and fattouche dreams,
