Bicharee or Bsharre is in Northern Lebanon about 100 Km north of the Capital Beirut. It is the birthplace of Gibran Khalil Gibran, author of the "Prophet". There are basically 3 major families in Bsharre: Taouk, Rahme, and Kayrouz. I lived in Bsharre for 2 years during the war, 75-76. I have many friends there and I'll be glad to help if i can.
