This is a picture taken back in 1958 showing American units on the Antelias shore which is almost where the Golden beach is now. I had no clue the Americans landed that far from Beirut during the 1958 invasion.

If you haven’t been to the Beirut Art Fair yet, I strongly recommend you do. I was there yesterday for the opening and I loved the exhibitions and stands. Here are some of the pictures I took but there’s a lot more to see.

Beirut/PAL (Persistence And Longing) by Tarek Chemaly now out!

Beirut/PAL (Persistence And Longing) by Tarek Chemaly is now out on 7UPstairs Publishing. Based upon a very complex mathematical pattern, retro kitsch images were rearranged very rigorously but also according to chance making the final works very representative of Beirut – an organized chaos which can be interpreted depending on the viewer’s circumstances and background.

Nicolas Audi à La Maison d’IXSIR Restaurant Now Open

When I attended the opening of Ixsir winery two years ago (and took a picture with the one and only Carlos Ghosn), I asked the Ixsir people if they are planning to open a restaurant here and the answer was that they are planning to do so in a year or two. It took them almost two years but the restaurant is now officially open for lunch from Tuesdays to Sundays. However it will be closed on Mondays.

Lebanese Flag Spotted In The Tomorrowland 2014 Aftermovie

I didn’t notice it the first time but one of my friends had posted a screenshot so I went through the video one more time to spot the flag. I know a lot of Lebanese who attended Tomorrowland so it’s no surprise to see the flag there. I was thinking of attending Tomorrowland next year in Belgium but I’d rather go watch the Spa-Francorchamps F1 GP.
Thanks Gabriel!

Home city vs Apple - copycat slogan?


I still smile when I remember that I see similarities everywhere, "laughable" someone recently said. OK, so let's see if this makes you laugh or not.
