1 Second Away. 100 Years Apart.

Found these two buildings on the same street in Nasra (Achrafieh).

They’re legit right next to each other. But one has flowers and a tree and looks so beautiful and vintage. And the other is bullet-holed and half-painted.

That’s the charm of Beirut, I guess.

You’d be looking at something so beautiful one second, and something so ugly right after. And you learn to appreciate them both at once.
