Felipe Mansur nació en Miniara, una aldea localizada en Akkar, Líbano, el 28 de Abril de 1878 y llegó a Colombia en Noviembre de 1897 a la edad de 19 años. Si mi memoria no me falla, en su diario (extraviado misteriosamente) explicaba que llegó en un barco y trajo solamente un dólar en el bolsillo.

En los mapas que siguen puedes ver al Líbano y a Miniara (Minyara).


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Miniara is located in the Mouhafazah of Akkar, North Lebanon, 9 kilometers east of the Mediterranean Sea, and 3 kilometers south of Halba. Miniara is the birth place of Ibrahim beik El-Sarraf, the first member of the Lebanese parliament to represent the Christian seat of Akkar when Lebanon was still a French Mandate. Also the birthplace of 3ezmi Sekkar, that completed 20 doctorettes.

The plains (Sahel) of Miniara are well known for their fertile land where vineyards and vegetables are grown in plentitude. Also known as the village that started other villages off, in terms of, teaching about clothing, food, and fashion, Miniara at one stage and still is to some extent, the village for the rich and wealthy.

Akkar is a region in the northern part of Lebanon, characterized by the presence of a relatively large coastal plain, with high mountains to the east. In 2003, Akkar was no longer a province, but was declared a Mouhafazah with Halba as its capital. The largest city of Akkar is Bebnin. Akkar has many important Roman and Arabic archeological sites. One of the most famous archeological sites and the birth place of the Emperor Alexander Severus, is the Tell of Arqa near the town of Miniara.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Republic of Lebanon, or Lebanon (Arabic: لبنان), is a small, largely mountainous country in the Middle East, located at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south, with a narrow coastline along its western edge. The flag of Lebanon features the Lebanon Cedar in green against a white backdrop, with two quarter-height horizontal red stripes on the top and bottom.

The name Lebanon (also "Loubnan" or "Lebnan") is derived from the Aramaic word laban, meaning "white", a reference to snow-capped Mount Lebanon.

National Anthem - English Translation

All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!
Our valor and our writings are the envy of the ages.
Our mountains and our valleys, they bring forth stalwart men.
And to Perfection all our efforts we devote.
All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!

Our Elders and our children, they await our Country's call,
And on the Day of Crisis they are as Lions of the Jungle.
The heart of our East is ever Lebanon,
May God preserve her until end of time.
All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!

The Gems of the East are her land and sea.
Throughout the world her good deeds flow from pole to pole.
And her name is her glory since time began.
Immortality's Symbol--the Cedar--is her Pride.
All of us! For our Country, for our Flag and Glory!
