Bellydancing in Beirut!

For the past four weeks I have been traveling through some of the most beautiful places in the world. Lebanon, Greece and Italy!

While in Lebanon, I met with one of the world's most influential belly dancers, the one and only Amani. A great inspiration since I began my path in Oriental dance over 10 years ago now!

Apart from soaking in the sun and belly dance scene in Lebanon, I ate lots of AMAZING traditional food, visited the mountain region Faraya, and bought a new costume!
