Yesterday, my daughter Jessica and I were delighted to go on a tour of northern Lebanon with Adla Chatila (my TechWomen mentee) and two of our school director friends from Makassed. One of the highlights was seeing the actual Cedars of Lebanon. We could not walk among these large beautiful trees because the snow was so deep but we got to touch one that was over 3,000 years old. We also saw the Kahlil Gibran museum and tomb in Besharreh, and an early printing press and cave at the Mar Bishay Hermitage, Qozhaya. We ended the day with a delightful TechWomen alumnae dinner here in Beirut. What an interesting and lovely country Lebanon is! Tomorrow, I have meetings with Makassed, some more touring, and then I start to fly home to San Francisco.
