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

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,

Joyce
