A nice article today in Al Akhbar on the Turkmene of Akkar, who still speak a Turkish patois and have Turkish flags in their homes alongside the Lebanese flag. (For you MM).

Tks for the link Rami. Interesting article. Sure beats profiles of our local politicians.

I had seen Turkmens in the Mishmish area, but I was not aware of the 2 villages cited in the article. We are going to need a project in the area in order to organize a road trip.
