Mohammed Al-Amin Mosque
Marfaa, Beirut, Lebanon
Mohammed Al Amin Mosque at NightBeirut is one of the places you've always heard about, but never really thought you would ever wind up (especially if you grew up watching 80's movies like Delta Force and Navy Seals like me). I had one free evening in downtown Beirut and tried to see as many sites as possible. One of the most striking was the Mohammed Al Amin Mosque all lit up with lights that made it glow against the dark night sky. After admiring it for a bit I enjoyed a glass of wine at a nearby cafe, while watching locals inhale the sweet flavors of shisha from their hookahs.
