My Walk to School

So, here it is...my walk to my Arabic Madrassa. It takes about 15 minutes. In that time, I see more than I could imagine in any other place. I'll let the images stand for themselves, for the most part.

Al-Hamra: The neighborhood of West Beirut in which I live. West Beirut was the home to the PLO during the 70's, until they were expelled in '82. East Beirut, during that time, was primarily a Christian area, sympathetic to Israel & the West. To get to my school, I walk from West Beirut, to the East.
