The forgotten open-air museum

Tripoli city, Lebanon

Hidden stairs

that lead to a small church

Unbeatable breakfast of fatteh: Peas and yoghurt over low fire since 4am, topped with pine nuts

Theatre of people and culture

The souk roams around ancient architecture

Sharkass soap atelier still makes soap the old-fashioned way

Baby foot on the street

Citadel of Tripoli: Old walls frame the new city

The pigeon flyer

Medieval domes and roofs

Halawat el Rez dessert

And long stairs

that take you elsewhere...
