Zahle is a pleasant place to stop for a while if you're heading for Baalbek in the North Bekaa after crossing in to Lebanon from Syria. With lots of restaurants serving both Lebanese food and a variety of more Western-style snacks, local wine or big glasses of fresh juice ( we ate at Adonis , on Rue de Brazil - excellent roast chicken sandwiches and fresh citrus juice) an hour or two spent here over a meal and a walk through the streets with their mix of new and old houses and several churches, shows you the laid-back and relaxed face of Lebanon's 3rd biggest city.
