Fisherman, Beirut

This was taken late this afternoon in Beirut’s Raouché (Arabic: الروشة، ) district, on a rocky outcrop that juts into the Mediterranean by the Avenue General De Gaulle. The scene inspired me to have a fish dinner. I wonder if the fisherman did, too.

Today’s Pic du Jour, the blog’s 670th (!!) straight, was snapped on 04-Nov-2015 in Beirut, Lebanon, a city that’s been suffering through a severe garbage collection crisis since mid-July, and the capital of a country that hasn’t had a President since May 25, 2014. Maybe the latter is why people here seem to smile a lot.

    I remember how magnificent manyof the cities of the Middle East were before they were ravaged by wars. It’s sad. Beirut has had to rebuild too many times.
