So we went for a ride to Broumana. I’ve been there now a couple of times and it’s time for some random impressions of the landscape and the city itself.
The landscape around north of Beirut is astonishing.
Broumana is a small village in north of Beirut. Very calm, local people, no traffic and a pleasant atmosphere.
Lebanons typical architecture. Why the hell is every hill, every street full of these?
One of the more fancy places in town. I guess prefer that kind of architecture, over the rest that can be found here in Lebanon.
Unfortunately, it was a bit hazy that day. Broumana lies on top of a larger hill and usually, when sunlight reaches the buildings, they illuminate in golden light.
And old tennis courtyard.
Rare to be seen: green plants.
And of course: the graveyard in Broumana. I love the architecture of the little chapel on it. It’s such an exotic mix with the palm-trees around to me.
