A view of Beirut’s downtown (contrast 1992 to 2011)

The last time I had been in Beirut was in the summer of 1992. These are the pictures I had taken then while walking around central Beirut. Compare and contrast them the video below!

Nineteen years later, I have come again to speak at a conference on social media. This is a video I took as I was driven through downtown Beirut in the same general area where the picture above was shot.

A hommage to the incredible resiliance of the Lebanese people!
