Baalbek - Just awesome - to say it in "American"

Rome, Athens, Leptis Magna (Libya), Jerash (Jordan) ? … No, Baalbek – Lebanon (Bekaa Valley) In Greek and Roman antiquity, it was known as Heliopolis. It still possesses some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in Lebanon, including one of the largest temples of the empire. And an impressive site/sight it is indeed. And as the Syrian border with those nice people from Daesh and Al Nusra etc is just a few miles away…no tourists at all 😝
