MY BEIRUT / nostalgia / PHOTOS

Hamra area {last breath}

and these are the last batch of my walking tour few days ago…I should do this more often…and probably print those pictures and hang them, they really remind me of the Beirut my parents must have known, which must have been a magical time, where bombs, electricity cuts, awful traffic and very bad politicians were not even invented!

{Beirut Corniche, cars driving to work, morning walkers…a normal day}

Do you also live in a city of contrast? Beirut is definitely one of them…
