Random impressions of Broumana

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.

By chance we’ve passed by a house that I’ve seen couple of months agot – but I couldn’t remember where it was located – and I fell in love with this James-Bond-like style.  Random impressions of Broumana 1

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.

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.
