I freely admit I did not think Beirutiyat could top last year's wonderful Ramadaniyat Beirutiya festival. And here we are, they did! In recreating the 70s Hamra atmosphere, complete with the same kitschy flavor, the work done this year was truly exceptional. Some stands from last year came back, others are new this year, but there is so much to discover and notice. I truly had a good time at the opening, now it is your turn till the 25th of June to enjoy yourself there!
