lebanon… day 3



american university of beirut

















hamra, near where i’m staying.








viva lebanon!!!










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!
