Initiatives to get people to understand that Lebanon is about much more than bombs and baddies are far from rare. Both Lebanese people and foreigners living here often struggle to convince friends and family elsewhere that, overwhelmingly, this is a country with enormous amount of fun, beauty, warmth and pleasure to offer – a fact rarely reflected in the headlines.
