Default Intresresting article "Beirut is back… and it's beautiful"

A good piece on Beirut as the #1 destination... flawed in places and a bit twee, but good none the less.

A couple of choice quotes!

"Beirut looms over our lives like… well, like the kind of psychotic ex-lover who you worry might strangle you in your sleep..."

"It's beautiful, Beirut, beautiful and ugly and pock-marked and damaged and glamorous and unstable and exciting and just a bit mentally unhinged. It's the Elizabeth Taylor of the Mediterranean"
