Monocle: Ashrafieh/NTSC


International affairs, style, business and culture magazine "Monocle"has place Ashrafieh (My neighborhood in Beirut) on their front cover.I have just been to the launch party (Sadly was boring as all hell),but this goes to all those who keep nagging me about "safety" issues and whatever have you ... Ashrafieh is praised as a model of exceptional architecture, cohabitation between faiths and a mix of eccentric and hard-headed individuals who just won't give up! (No wonder I live here). The downside is that bulldozers seem to be threatening this landscape making it perhaps Ashrafieh/NTSC.
