Fact of the Day: No Desert Lebanon

Since it's a rather small country in land mass, Lebanon is the only country in the Middle East where there is no desert anywhere in its borders.

  3. Unless you consider Cyprus to be in the Middle East, which from a strictly geographical viewpoint it really is.

    In Europe, there's only one country which does have any desert within its borders (Spain), which suggests the difference in rainfall between the two regions.

  4. I didn't know that either. My neighbor is from Lebanon.

  5. No volcanoes, either. A list of what they don't have, geographically, would be fun.

  6. No comment on this country from me.
    Once was the Paris (Beirut) of the "so-called" east!
    A country to be avoided like the plague.

  7. I didn't realize that Lebanon had no desert lands. I sometimes try to imagine what its forests of cedar trees were like.

  8. Do cedars still grow in Lebanon? Off to Google, I go.
