I read (in Media LIne, I think) that Lebanon's 2009 tourism numbers increased 39% over 2008. And 2008 was an up year. From my perspective, that's an amazing increase. What's the explanation? Is it just peace?

Just in case you didn't catch it on our home page, this week our Top Tune From Around the Planet was from Lebanon's Myriam Fares: "Eih Elly Byehsal? (What's Going On?)." Enjoy!

Our latest ditty hails from Lebanon via the pouty lips of sultry chanteuse Myriam Fares, who at 26 already has several albums and a brand of perfume under her belt... a decade after snagging first place at the Lebanese Song Festival. "Eih Elly Byehsal?" is in the Egyptian rather than Lebanese dialect of Arabic (which is more widely understood throughout the Arab world), and frankly, there's nothing remotely deep here ("I'm in love and how can I describe this passion?"). But it's certainly easy on both eyes and ears, so what the hey. Now, Myriam isn't without her critics: More than a few have said she tends to ape (part-Lebanese) Colombian sexpot Shakira, while some fans of another Lebanese singer a decade older, Haifa Wehbe, claim Myriam is copying her. Picky, picky...but never mind that -- what if Hezbollah finds out?
