I was in Beirut Lebanon with for the A W T T E ( Arab World Travel and Tourism Exchange ).Beirut was not as what I had imagined. I’m so suprised of the drastic changes. The Downtown has emerge as Beirut’s most fashionable and desireable neighbourhood, with gloriously restored French Mandate-ers buildings, world -class restaurants.
Life and the vibrant social scene has returned to the former ” Pearl of the Middle East” and once again an exquisite experience, perched on a breathtaking sweep of the Mediterranean coastline.
Besides taking photos of this beautiful city, I just can’t resist myself to sketch on the spot and capture a more exquisite and sentimental details while exploring downtown Beirut and the surrounding neighborhoods including the Corniche by the seaside promenade, the waterfront boulevard with magnificent view of the Mediterranean.
