This triumphal arch awed visitors to the city of Thamugadi, founded by the emperor Trajan around A.D. 100 as a civilian settlement near the fort of Lambaesis. The grooves left by wagon and chariot wheels can still be seen in the stone road.

        you will find plenty of people that would teach you dabke, but sadly not me,my parents has no interest in dabke, so the only chance for me to learn dabke is by my new friends, at a party or a special occasion. so we may learn together lol. as i know, it is just few steps, but you should learn the way they are done (or you will sound like an idiot just jumping in his place) and you should know how to rhyme them and follow the music

        oh, just asked my mother about what she knows about dabke, she said it is more like the dance of people from Baalback, where as people from south Lebanon just dance, they are not experts in dabke, they have been introduced to it recently, luckily i have a friend from Baalback.
        and here another thing i love about lebanon, very small, but have too much different people living together, too sadly that some people are trying to destroy this heavenly bless
