Most of us only see Beirut in Grey. The fact that greenery is rare and dispersed we don’t notice the trees as much. But despite that, if we look around us as we walk, we do find from time to time, a few very beautiful and old trees. Have you read Najla Khoury’s precious book شجرة السماء “Tree of Heaven” ? It takes you on a journey from Aisha Bakkar to Ashrafieh through the trees on this path, illustrated by our very own Nadine Feghaly! Check it out: http://violatre.blogspot.com/2011/12/tree-of-heaven.html
So we came up with a challenge for you! What’s your favorite tree in Beirut?
Take the following week to look around you and find one to share with us!
Tell us where it is, and post a picture of it on our Facebook page! We will then compile them and share them with our community.
Below you can find our very own three favorite trees in Beirut!
And you? What’s your favourite tree in Beirut?
