^^ Notice how the old homes were destroyed to make way for the McDonald's!

Sure Beirut had her glory in the past, but it is improving every day with all it's new projects.
The Lebanese have put a GREAT effort to preserve their downtown and renovate it. I am amazed
everytime I see it and to think that this was the downtown they had in the 1970's is just astonishing!

Beirut was and still is a city to rave about

Whoa, thanks for posting these, LITZ. I love how I can almost "feel" the vibe of Parliament Square from Cushman's photos.

Cool. I think that once the presidential crisis is over (which I think will be soon) Beirut will again become like it was in 06 before the Israel Hezbollah war and become a destination again.
