Kanisat Saydet Al-Hosn (Church of Our Lady of the Fortress) - Ehden, Lebanon

The church dates back to the 9th century, it was built over the remains of a crusader fortress.

It’s popular amongst locals & tourists due to the panoramic views from the church’s balcony.

its so stupid how the west’s way of thinking is ‘white is the default’ and any variation in race, ethnicity, culture, orientation …etc. is seen as ‘add-ons’, i mean in media. like i cant believe having one person in ur story’s cast with a slightly browner complexion gets seen as ‘’’’progressive’’’’, fucking hell. this way of thinking is toxic as hell, the world isnt just whities, shocking i know. Y’all aren’t even the majority in the world’s population, so stfu with this ‘white is default’ bullshit. make ur main character a trans darkskinned black woman with a love interest a lady from Lebanon, who has a sister that wears a niqab and uses a wheelchair some days.
