Remember the picture of that woman doing yoga in the middle of the street in Achrafieh? Well it wasn’t a random act but a stunt to promote the first yoga festival in Beirut which will take place in Pleine Nature in Mansourieh on the 20th of September 2014.

Check out more info on [Facebook] and the [website].

Update: I didn’t give the location much importance at first, but it’s pretty weird that it’s not in Beirut as pointed out by Nour specially that it’s the first Beirut Yoga Festival.

Batroun Khallia A7la: Beach Clean Up Campaign

Posted By :

batroun

A group of young Lebanese have started an initiative “Batroun Khalia A7la” aimed at keeping beaches in Batroun clean. They’ve already cleaned with the help of volunteers the Ghleyghile beach and gathered over 40 trash bags that included a TV, some car wheels, used baby diapers among other things. I uploaded before and after pictures from their Facebook page.

This Sunday, they are organizing another beach clean up at BlueBay Beach in Batroun as well. You can meet them at 7 am there and help them with the cleaning process. Everyone is more than welcome to join!

I love these initiatives and I wish people from every area in Lebanon would volunteer to keep their city clean.

I unfortunately can’t make it to John Martin’s concert but I got tickets to Yuri Buenaventura and I am looking forward to it. Even though I don’t listen to jazz that often, I love live performances.

The Jounieh fireworks yesterday were even more spectacular than last year and I was at one of the best spots to watch them all on the roof top of Hotel Monte Cassino, which is a new boutique hotel right next to the Casino du Liban. I posted a couple of shots I took and you can find below more pictures taken from the Jounieh Festival Facebook page.
