Anytime you are driving back from Beirut on the Dora Highway, you’ll probably notice by the time you get to Sukleen a large writing on the wall saying “Chou fi wara el 7ayt?”.
Well if you ever wondered who wrote this, it’s a blogger who still believes in reviving old train stations in Lebanon, and mainly the Mar Mikhael station which happens to be located behind that wall.
The initiative of this blog is to draw back the attention onto a forgotten space, at the heart of Beirut â€“ capital city of Lebanon â€“ enclosed between four walls: a train station frozen in time, where only green kept living.
Mar Mikhael station is a potential breathing space for a Beirut that keeps on densifying.
Its tracks are still there behind the wall and extend through the city; itâ€™s time to take a look again and rememberâ€¦
