Street Art in LebanonLike0

I vaguely remember the Gemeyzeh nights in Lebanon back in the days, but clear enough to remember my love hate relationship with the area and the countless times I’ve heard people repeatedly express their love for Gemeyzeh.
I envied some, seeing that street a work of art and history, a place where it will never be forgotten and how big of a rampage people went on about how Gemeyzeh will never be forgotten.
But people have. What used to be once a street of loud music, inconsiderable honking and sleepless nights for residence, has become a peaceful, deserted street once again. The ones who benefited are the residence, the ones who lost, (not entirely) are the pub owners who closed down because if high rent and strict laws that got applied after the charade between residence, laws and pub owners.
Still, to me, Gemeyzeh will always be a street where you can ruin your whole night by trying to get into that road with your car and not being able to find a place to sit after 6pm! Because that’s when most people here start drinking.
I did decide however to head out on a street art discovery in hopes for images, stories and find out if people’s hearts are still lingering here, or at least their shadows. Live, Love, Beirut.

This is what we found.

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post πŸ’•
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... πŸ’•[Click link in bio to read the full article] πŸ’•.
