Beirut looks much more beautiful than it was in the mid-1980s when I visited it then -excellent collection and thanks for sharing !

Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Those are some pics (not very good quality) showing views from the hills around Beirut. Some of these neighborhoods are rich such as in the last pic.

Sorry for getting political but how much of Beirut was damaged/destroyed in the Israeli bombings? Hopefully none of those areas in the pictures were affected

Beirut was not affected. It's one neighborhood in the southern suburbs of the city that was targeted but the media mixes up and refers to suburbs as Beirut. None of the areas in the pics were affected.

View of Jounieh City and you can see Beirut at the back








The most magical part of the country is when you go ski, you are able to see
Beirut, the mediterenean sea and almost all of Lebanon's coastline, on a very
clear day you can see the island of Cyprus and during the night, the
coastline just sparkles your eyes and it is a heavenly view. And when you're
done sking in the morning, you can go to the beach 30 minutes later
