Thinking about moving to Beirut

Hey everyone! I am brand new to this, about 5 min in, but a friend living in Oman turned me onto the site and said maybe it could help me. Currently I'm a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras until Sept Protected content . The plan is to move back to the states for a bit, ideally NYC where my girlfriend lives, or DC where I'm from, and work for a few months until my gf and I are ready to move to the Middle East. She studies arabic, and is pretty good at this point. The idea is to move out there and improve our Arabic (mine is btw non-existent but I want to learn). I am fluent in Spanish however. And she will be tutoring me as well in Arabic. Currently we're leaning towards Beirut and were just interested in any general yips or advice the community could provide, thanks!
