I was about four years old in Tehran when my eldest brother went to study at the American University of Beirut. He used to send us postcards rather than long letters. I remember vividly how happy I was when we received these cards.


I particularly loved the Lebanese stamps. They were much more colourful and interesting than the Iranian stamps. I also loved the Lebanese flag with its beautiful Cedar tree. I think Lebanese flag was the first flag that I could recognize as a child.
