Lebanon laptop travels with Ebay

Posted by adiamondinsunlight on September 5, 2007

Its another beautiful late summer Iowa day, and I am daydreaming of Beirut. Not of September 6, 2007 Beirut, riddled with power cuts and drenched in heat, but of a more glamorous antebellum Beirut – the Beirut my parents say they remember acquaintances raving about after holidays there.

And Ebay is there to help flesh out my travel fantasies, with several vendors currently offering old Beirut hotel luggage tags for sale. (Who knew?)

I don’t want to buy them, but I do want to luxuriate in the travelers’ paradise they promise. And to live up to them, I’m dressing the part: I’m wearing peek-a-boo heels and fresh lipstick. Bon voyage!
