i was lucky enough to have a 9 hour layover in prague on my way home from lebanon.
wandering about beirut.
war torn, yet bustling with hope for a better future.
a land of contrasts to say the least.
american university of beirut
hamra, near where i’m staying.
downtown beirut with mountains in the distance. very hazy…
my humble abode. walid was nice enough to let me take over this room for ten days… much better than the impersonal nature of a hotel… and, it’s free! i just treat him to dinner sometimes.
walid gholmieh put on an arabic/ oriental symphony wednesday night. i was fortunate enough to attend and meet him. the concert was beautiful… and free!
