One of the most interesting thing about the city of Beirut is its complex architecture. Super modern skyscrapers coinciding with beautiful 100 year old houses with their typical red tiled roofs.
I am all for keeping the old houses, of course, and my children are growing up hating every single building site in Beirut, because “trees are being cut and tall buildings are being built. Mamie why do they all want to live in the city, the mountains are so much nicer to live in!”
Here are some snapshots of few old houses, where time has stopped and memories are ankered.
