...but it's hell for field collectors like you, Frank. When I was there hiking the hills above Beirut, I got excited to find manganese dendrites on a lump of pink limestone, and, in another place, a piece of translucent yellow travertine. That tells you how diverse the mineralogy is. Most interesting stuff in Lebanon are fossils, especially bugs in amber, which unfortunately are in the Hezbollah-controlled region in the south.

On April 8, 2016, the MIM Museum was overcrowded with visitors. The queue at the entrance started to form at 5:00 PM and lasted till 11:00 PM.  In 6 hours’ time, we received 9000 visitors. Yes, it is a huge number for a country as small as Lebanon (10452 Km2)! For the 3rd year in a row, the Lebanese Ministry of Culture organized an event “A night at the Museums”. 11 museums were participating to that event. The number of visitors is increasing over the years: 2000 in 2014, 4000 in 2015 and 9000 in 2016.
