Why do we love Beirut?
Café Rawda: sit there, stare at the sea, enjoy.

Stefanie most loves what she calles the blue hour: after sunset but before dusk at café Rawda.

Cordelia loves the smell (even if sometimes its hard to stand) and the undescribable atmosphere - attractive, comforting, full of promises. Most of all, I miss the light. It is different from other (european) cities: bright and clear but warm, somehow filled with density. 1 Million call for prayers at the same time in a cacophonie that in itself becomes beauty.

Now, we stop here; otherwise, it won't end.

Stefanie and Cordelia
