The Raouché Rock, Beirut.

25 Apr

I was enjoying the fantastic coastline and the idea of looking out from the eastern dead end of the Mediterranean, straight out towards the Gibraltar strait at the other end. All those travelers who came from the West and were overjoyed to have reached these shores!

Then my friend Rasha explained its local significance: “It’s a place where there is a diving competition organized by the thugs and the tough boys. And it’s a place where people commit suicide.”
