This reality hit me when someone asked me to pen down my thoughts on Lebanon now that it was time to leave.It could just be something on a very "informative and diplomatic" level but, then I thought of writing what and how I felt, reason being, I wanted the reader to see the Lebanon that I saw, through my eyes – hence what you read here is a very personal account of my thoughts.Lebanon, an unexplored yet at the same time a chaotic land.Coming from a one-religion state and a moderately practicing religious family, I initially found a lot of things strange – things that left me confused, surprised and questioning my own school of thought.This is the effect of Lebanon – it gets you thinking on a very different level.When I came here and started socializing with different people at different occasions, I realized that without the understanding of the history of this region one would always be confused, lost and clueless of what's happening.I can go on and on with my own experiences, opinions and understanding of Lebanon.
