    As a fellow Lebanese person, you are good people (especially because you didn't attention whore yourself into the picture. Lot's of respect for that).

    Lebanon is a beautiful place and deserves to stay that way. Good work and thank you!

    There's a Lebanese restaurant by me that absolutely rocks. They have this rice/bean dish with garlic, oregano, nutmeg and a hint of cinnamon that is a palate explosion by itself, but I go the extra mile and pour over some lemony tahini and sometimes their homemade hot sauce if I'm feeling a little naughty. Holy shit it's good. They also have this veggie chili that has some spice that I can't pinpoint, probably tasty God farts. I could just inject into my veins and be happy my tombstone read "This idiot injected chili in his veins but smiled as it poured out his eyes". Not to mention the shwarma wraps and chicken mishwi. And it's all pretty healthy, unless you eat 17 things from there, like I always do. I'm going to order some from there right now on a delay, but need to make sure I get there within the correct 10 minute increment so I don't waste a minute not eating it.

    Anyway, nice work on the trash.

    Fun fact about Byblos port:

    Byblos Port, the oldest port in the world, is more than 5000 years old

    Byblos Port is an ancient port in Byblos, Lebanon and is believed by the Lebanese to be oldest port in the world. Around 3000 BC, Byblos Port was the most important timber shipping center in the eastern Mediterranean. It was used by the Phoenicians to ship their local wine, Cedars of Lebanon and other wood to the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt to be used in tomb construction and shipbuilding.

    Upset I can’t edit the title so going to do it like this.

    Ok so was never expecting this to blow up! Very humbled by everyone’s kind words. Also I refuse to be the idiot who thanks the kind stranger for the awards so... fuck all of you for spending money on me.

    Just to answer some questions:

    We are three Lebanese Americans who love and visit Lebanon yearly.

    I am terribly sorry but we didn’t take a before picture (didn’t even think about it honestly), as I mentioned below, we started a bit late (around 3) to try and avoid some of the heat and finished around 8ish. Don’t worry, we’ll get a before picture next time 😜.

    I have a few more pics without us (I won’t share pictures of us) but I cant post them, (i have to link them? Got no idea how?).

    The real issue is people’s mindset. Everyone in Lebanon doesn’t seem to care about the trash. Saw a few people throwing cigarettes and garbage WHILE they watched us clean up and even though there are garbage cans only a few feet away on the walking area.

    People were asking us if this was our job or how much we were getting paid then looked at us crazy when we said we were on vacation and just wanted to hangout and clean some garbage together.

    Had so much fun we are debating doing it again (but this time bringing a speaker for music). Have a great day everyone!
