Extreme Home Makeover : Beirut Edition

2nd Place- Mango, and a warm welcome to Beirut, Scarlett, Regards to Penelope...we miss her.
Grand Prize Winner- Aishti...This old house never looked so good!

Well done!!!

Welcome to Beirut!

 Online ticketing and Check-in. Wow! Nice!
Thanks for that option MEA,  now all we need is some decent internet and a bit more electricity!

Here's a great ad still in circulation. *Originally posted 10/11/09 and sorry to say we still need decent internet and electricity and either one or both might explain the ongoing complaints about the MEA website.
