I got this beautiful waterfall postcard several months ago and finally it's time to post it here and share it with you, fellow collectors! It shows a gorgeous waterfall in Lebanon, located near the town of Jezzine. 
Jezzine (also spelled Jizzin) is a town in Lebanon, located 40 km south of Beirut. Surrounded by mountain peaks, pine forests, and at an average altitude of 950 m, it is the main summer resort and tourist destination of South Lebanon. The town is also famous in Lebanon for its production of handmade, traditional cutlery and daggers with decorative inlays as well as the shrine of Our Lady of the Waterfall.

I especially like the stamp in the left-bottom corner representing the ancient alphabet and beginnings of the alphabet as we know it today. Many many thanks go to Maick and his friend from Lebanon!
