Beirut pic of the day

This shot captures the essence of the way-out contrast of Beirut city. On the streets there are the motorbikers, truckers, taxis and SUVs, driving past the Ramadan moon decor on Martyrs' Square and under the super-modern Restaurant in the Sky dining concept suspended by a crane. On the left, above the Virgin Megastore, are other cranes, building the city to new heights, while on the left of the truck is the white tent in which lies the body of assassinated former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. And in the distance is the inviting Mediterranean Sea. What you cannot see is the heat of the day...
