Fashion not Friction
For years the name 'Beirut' evoked images of a vicious civil war and a hotspot of clashing cultures. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered a Lebanon of high class fashion, vibrant beauty, worldly citizens and some of the most amazing nightlife in the Middle East. The rebuilt downtown area with its restaurants and high class shopping is now the star attraction - go look, you won't be disappointed.
