This summer I had the chance to go back to Lebanon and my beloved Beirut, after a good many years. I'm Beiruti like I'm a Beijinger: I lived there for a while, and it has become an inseparable part of my life. And that trip was more than amazing: the food was as good or better than I remembered, I saw wonderful old friends and made new ones, I marvelled again at the history and stories and was sad again at the turn of recent events, the language and even my style of driving from those days came back to me! In short, I lived, and loved, Beirut and Lebanon again.
I took way too many photos and videos. Way, way more than ever on any trip. And it's taking me long to sort and label them (I always do that), and I almost never post something until I'm done with that part... But soon, hopefully, I'll be writing about this incredible trip back to one of the homelands which provided the inspiration for the autumn look of my blog.
