Lebanon - Beirut - Rue Maarad

Downtown, Maarad Street

Sent by Agnieska from Beirut, Lebanon.

Rue Maarad (Arabic: شارع المعرض) is a main street in the Beirut Central District, the “vibrant financial, commercial, and administrative hub of Lebanon". Severely damaged in the Lebanese Civil War, the street underwent a thorough reconstruction and development plan by the Lebanese real estate giant Solidere. The buildings along and around the street were preserved and restored emphasizing on their original character, and access to the street was limited only to pedestrian movement. (read further)

Hello I'm happy that you received this card from me. I sent you a message via postcrossing forum. You promised me a card from Falkland Islands but I haven't received anything from you. I will be happy if you contact me.

Best wishes
