This morning I went with two of my friends to Tarhouna. It's about an hours drive from Tripoli. The views along the roadsides are beautiful. The outskirts of Tripoli are mostly flat farmland, but as you approach Tarhouna the landscape becomes hilly and mountainous. There were lots of wildflowers - most of them yellow and purple in color. In one area between the towns of Qasr-Ben-Gashir and Speeah, there were fields full of bright red poppys.
It was a lovely morning spent with two very special people!
