Beirut Street Signs

Lately, most Lebanese drivers have been getting speeding tickets or fearing getting them since new radars spread around the city (check here, here and here for bloggers reactions and opinions).
The thought of starting a series of disguised speed radars like that makes me chuckle.
Where art thou Minister Ziad Baroud?

Gas Station's Flower Vase - Damascus Road

Romanticism in a plastic water bottle at a gas station in Lebanon.

*updated: added white frame for the black from the open door escapes and makes the composition heavy on one side. that's balance in context of a website with a black background.

*update 2: changed the background of the blog to Grey.

Play - since you like to play - and don't loose that play liking habit.

At around 11am, I was driving somewhere between St. Nicholas and Sofil.
I saw her, but I do not have a photo.

She was skipping rope, jumping one jump after the other, playing alone, between 2 cars parked on the side road park-meter.

She is one of those kids who annoy you when you are already annoyed by the traffic jam, one of those kids, who at 11am are not at a school. One, of those kids like all kids, who likes to play.

This capacity children have to stop everything, forget everything and play is amazing; forget the traffic, the money, the work, the sun, the shoe, the people and... jump.

Jump, play, dream. I want to too. (just playing with the "too to" sound)
