Photo of the Day – Reading Coffee Grains in Lebanon

Reading coffee grains is an age old tradition in Lebanon. Dating back thousands of years, after enjoying a nice Arabic (Turkish) Coffee, you look at the grinds at the bottom of your cup and see what images are there. The shapes that feature on the right side are usually interpreted positively, while shapes on the left are interpreted as signs of bad events, enemies, illnesses, troubles, and the like.
