Beirut Graffiti

Posted on September 14, 2012

Back in my office cleaning days, it was always interesting to see how different people decorated their offices. You can tell a lot about a person by observing the slogans and images they surround themselves with.

Here is a collection of graffiti I found while exploring the streets within a few-mile radius of the American University of Beirut. Perhaps these images and slogans reveal some things about the young people and street artists of Beirut?

 

Beirut for Beginners

Posted on September 11, 2012

Rebecca and I landed in Beirut on August 31st. Rebecca will be studying at the American University of Beirut, and I will study at the Arab Baptist Seminary while working a communications job. We will probably live outside Beirut in Mansourieh, from which these photos are taken. The view looks out over Beirut all the way to the Mediterranean sea! Hopefully we’ll get time to write some things about our first days here in the near future.
