I went with my colleagues to Sour yesterday and it was a really nice, not to be forgotten!!
We arrived in Sour at about midday, went to a really modest restaurant at the beach, the weather was awesome!
This is the view from the restaurant
Had a couple of beers, then lunch
Went for a swim, the water was cold but in the same time so refreshing!!
Then we went for a walk in Sour, passed by a lovely old Restaurant and Auberge called “Al
Fanar”, here are some photos
Then passed by the old Christian souk,
And went to the Roman Hippodrome which was added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in
The visit ended by a Yummy ice cream and sweets for "helwayat El Baba" in Saida.
Hope you enjoyed the ride

flower from my mum's
Itsy Bitsy Spider"
The itsy, bitsy spider, climbed up the water
Down came the rain and washed the spider out.
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain,
So the itsy, bitsy spider went up the spout again.
