Day 8 – Tripoli
Today was all about food and family. And boy oh boy was there a lot of food. We got to sleep in a bit, before meeting up with family at a nearby restaurant for lunch. Here’s a snippet of our meal.
I filled up on the huge amount of mezze provided, before realising the meat was still to come. Chicken, lahmeh, kefta – stacks on stacks on stacks. I forced some down (as well as two orange juices, which were 9/10’s), and then out came the dessert and fruit.
Another huge food coma later, we went back to our relatives house which was next door to the restaurant. The house was huge, right on the water, and super fancy.
We hung out there, took some photos had more dessert, drinks and played cards until the evening. I think this is the third day in a row we’ve eaten so much to be bursting at the seams.
It sounds like tomorrow will be another chill family day, so may not be many photos. I’ll try and get some though.
