Security in Lebanon
I was working quite a long time this year in Lebanon. At the moment the situation is stable, but since there is an election-period the situation may change within hours, in particular in Beirut and near the Palastensian camps. Therefore have an eye on the news and talk with people at your hotel. Generally speaking travelling in Lebanon is very easy, people are really nice. Take care of the traffic in Beirut, people are driving really crazy there, specially if you are going by motorbike. In most places people know English or French.
