Wed 6. [6 June 1900] Most peaceful morning under the Cedars. Lunched at 12 off at one. Daphne, periwinkle, yellow broom. Rode down a very steep valley to Bsherreh [Bcharre] a lovely place on the edge of the Kadisha. The road to Ehden and Tripoli [Trablous] turns off a little before it. Stone houses roofed with red slates. Crossed the valley under a Catholic monastery and rode down the other side to Hasrun, even more lovely, picked up on cliffs. Delicious camping ground with a rocky gorge between us and the town.
