    Hi Manny, Very nice shot(s)!. Here's an updated version, almost 2 years later at the same time more or less. You can see the Christmas tree at the same place! Cheers.

    Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification. I had forgotten that tags at gigapan.org get mangled by the system - very annoying and unhelpful on occasions!

    Your comment makes a valid point. The tag should be "martyrs' square" rather than simply "martyr". It is the name given to the square located at the very bottom of the road, where the X-mas tree is located to be more precise. This square is very symbolic to the Lebanese.

    Why is "martyr" a tag on this image? I am sure there have been many martyrs in this part of the world, but is there a specific reason for using it as a tag here? Is the mosque named for a martyr perhaps?
