William's Tyre
In his comment in the "Waltz With Bashir" thread William says: "I have a friend whose mother still lives in Tyre. He e-mailed me a veritable travel brochure, pictures of the ports, towns, mountains of Lebanon. Beautiful country, one I would like to visit and explore. In some aspects what I saw was not entirely unlike some of the places of my youth." Tyre is one of the wonders of the world, the older part once an island that Alexander the Great, if memory serves, dyked up (should I be spelling it that way?) the better to invade it. I was there in 2000, so I'm unearthing a couple of shots from that trip for memory's sake: what's left of Tyre's fishermen, and what's left of a Roman triumphal arch. My colleague Austin Cline has more on this. Thanks for the reminder William.
