Can you guess what material these cute little shoes are made of? Of course you do because you’ve read the title above, right? Yes, it’s soap! Sooo pretty, non? My friend and I visited the incredibly charming Soap Museum in the old souks of Saida (here), and she was soo impressed… We definitely agreed that THIS is the perfect Lebanon. Traditional and modern, friendly and welcoming, clean and green, colourful and calm… After the tour, we had a break at the museum’s “Matbakh” cafeteria where we spent lots of euros on organic olive oil, home-made sweets and amazing books (including this one about Lebanese “Mouné”/food provisions).
