The Beirut taxi drive is a reverie. A window into the human condition that opens and closes before you know it’s there or it’s gone. For a journalist, the drives offer a mosaic of experience, vignettes that often fill in the missing context of reporting.
A stop at Abu Adel in Khandaq al-Ghamik for some chicken and beef sandwiches. The picture behind Hasan is the grandfather of the owner who started the shop in Beirut many years ago.

Took a trip down to Beit Yahoun, south Lebanon to spend some time with Hasan, Ali, a plate full of chicken and fish, and a windy porch nap.
