Hi Michael! I am really looking forward to reading about your trip to Lebanon if you find time to write about it. Marie has been telling me all about your conversations with each other, and I really hope we will all be spending some time together in the Big Apple this winter! I think your show is fascinating, and I would love to see it if the opportunity ever presents itself! (Say, Jan. 2007, perhaps?) Have a safe journey! Your "little" friend for the small hometown, Laura

Hi Michael,
I came upon your blog by doing a google search for Zahalie, Lebanon. My family research has led me to find out that (who I believe is) my great great grandfather was born in "Zahalie, Syria" in 1865. I guess with borders moving after the split of the Ottoman Empire, this is probably now in Lebanon, but what I cannot figure out is... where is Zahalie? I can't find it on google maps. Is it Zahle, Lebanon?

I'm also very interested to talk to you because my relatives were Catholic and your family is too, and given the politics of the region, it seems that this must be quite rare.

I hope you can contact me.
Thanks a bunch for your post!
