Beyrouth

11.17.2016

There is a lot to like about Beyrouth: the Corniche at sunset, the Nutella crepe from Bliss street, the Souk el Tayeb, Downtown at night, the Mana'esh with Zaatar (dough topped with thyme), the National Museum, Zeytouna Bay and the list goes on and on. 

You can like a city for many reasons but I like it because of how it makes me feel. Wether it's spiritually: the Mosque of Burj Abi Haidar is one of my favourite with its old rocks, deep red carpets and its astonishing Adhan (call to prayer). Emotionally: the thrill rides in between the cars trying to make it on time, alive. Mindfully: noticing the harmonious mix between modernity and tradition and feeling that your personality is in a kind of osmosis with this city. Historically: the remains of war that you can actually read on a lot of walls of Beyrouth is staggering and let you go on a ride of imagination while observing and questioning curiously. Last but not least, intensely: as it's the city of birth of my dear husband which takes away any dash of impartiality I could have on the town. <3

Fashionably speaking, this white ensemble, rust blouse and beige scarf blended in Downtown Beyrouth perfectly.
