  2. Because it has been so difficult ironing out the dual citizenship issues, I now travel outside of Mount Lebanon only on my US passport. My recurring mightmare is that I'll drive out only to realize I have forgotten to bring my MtL documentation and will have to apply for a visa to get back in. Expatriate life is difficult, even with the Mount Lebanon edition of the Herald Trib and now, Fake Lebo. Where I am at the moment, for example, it is terribly flat so, oddly, you cannot see anywhere, because of the trees. In Mount Lebanon, you can always cast an eye across the hills and see what everyone is doing across the way. Also, one feels lonely and even un-neighborly pumping gasoline in a station that has room for cars. The consolation, however, is that no matter where you are on the planet, and possibly off of it, all you have to do is say, "Didn't you go to The High School?" and your fellow expat will know exactly which high school you mean. Seriously, this has actually happened, and no one ever says "Mount Lebanon High School."
