"What a gorgeous view," Martjin van der Kooij murmurs to himself.A Dutch journalist and political commentator, Van der Kooij visited Lebanon for a short few days recently, paying homage to the people and sites documented in his new memoir "Alle Dagen Libanon"."Literally, it translates to 'All Days Lebanon,' but this doesn't make any sense in English".The Dutch author takes his time, turning to his friends in the room for help. Having grown up in the Netherlands from the mid-1970s through the '80s, Van der Kooij was surrounded by news of this small country. After a few decades of observing the country from abroad, Van der Kooij finally bought his tickets in 2006 . Unfortunately, his plans were cut short by the Israeli military's 34-day war on Lebanon.This delayed but did not deter Van der Kooij from finally making his trip.
