Beirut in a nutshell! by ruthmouch

Beirut in a nutshell!

The pool of one of the most fabulously gorgeous new downtown buildings happens to look out onto Beirut's war damaged Holiday Inn! We had a lovely girly afternoon which included bubbles, good company and frequent dips.
With humanity seeming to own an incredibly short memory perhaps such eyesores should be kept as permanent reminders of the stupidity and loss that war seems to engender.
(History: Just months after completion the Holiday Inn became a strategic asset to competing militias between 1975-6 in what was dubbed as the "war of the hotels.")
What interesting contrasts! Great comp. Fav :)
