We also had the privilege of accompanying Samer’s fiancée, Reem. Samer, by the way, is such a nice a guy that none of us had even met or known, but we feel like we know him so well after we heard a lot about him.
We started early in the morning from an area called Afra and went through the mountains towards Bloudan.
Mainly, it was up and down the mountains all the time.
We stopped for breakfast and an hour break somewhere on the way; we found a good spot with nice shade and a little spring of water.
With a breakfast that consists of eggs, cheese, meat and noodles, always comes the tea!
After the break some people wanted to warm up by doing some sword fighting with sticks!
We resumed walking; it was wonderful scenes all the way, mountains, trees, hills and valleys.
Up in these mountains, we came across lots of trees that I had never seen in my life except for the cedars, I guess, it’s not an exclusive Lebanese symbol anymore ;)
Louma, Amr and myselfWhile we were descending the last mountain, the sun was descending; it had done her job for the day and lightened our path during the entire walk.
In case you wonder about the title, I heard it when we were descending the last steep hill, we were in a row of three, myself and one of the hiking girls was holding my backpack and another girl was holding her hand, I was in the lead. While we were struggling not to fall, the third girl told the girl in the middle: "If he falls, let go of him"! :-\ I guess they say something about trusting women on your life ;)
