Although the weather has been quite nice lately, today it is raining outside. Which of course makes me miss Lebanon and the Middle East even more. To alleviate my pain(or aggregate – depends on how you see it) , I put together a theme pack with a few of my Lebanon pictures. Some from Beirut, more from Ebel es Saqi and Blate in the south. Take a look, grab it if you want, and feedback is welcome in the comments underneath.
In 2006 I served as a United Nations Military Observer in the Middle East, in the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO). I took my family and moved to Damascus, Syria while I served, and we all had a wonderful time despite the July war of that year. We travelled around the region and took a lot of pictures. I took some of those pictures and made “My Middle East Theme-pack” for Windows 7. The pictures are from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. In my earlier blog post “My Windows 7 Desktop!” two of the backgrounds from this theme-pack were shown. Friend and fellow tech-geek Technogran suggested that I make the theme-pack publicly available, so here it is. I hope you will enjoy these sights from a beautiful, but war torn region.
