Sam in Beirut • سام في بيروت
Sister has taken a great initiative yesterday night gathering humanitarian professionals from different agencies around music and dining tables. Yasmine was invited too. She had a blast socializing and pretending to know how to dance. Today is #WorldAnimalDay. All thanks to my life companion @sallym
Postcard from Beqaa Valley, East Lebanon 🌾
The next time you're mad at me, talk to me,' he said. 'Don't shut me out. I don't like playing games. And by the way, I had a great time, too. artwork by Henrik Uldalen
Back in 2013 and Karella is still a favorite colleague, an inspiration and good life definition. I love you!
Here's the sacred lake of Saghbine, West Beqaa. The lake gleans its summer beauty from winter snow. Behind the scene is a very friendly local whose job is to take you on a horse ride, and another who can get you on a family boat.
At the very heart of Lebanon lays the Bekaa Valley, home of Chateau Kefraya's vineyards.🌲🇱🇧 #livingframe

Have you ever wondered what marks our time here? If one life can really make an impact on the world, or if the choices we make matter? I believe they do. And I believe that one man can change many lives. For better... or for worse. artwork by cvneyt
My doctor said we can't choose where we come from but we can choose where to go. I know it's not all the answers but it was enough to start putting these pieces together. photo by Caitlin Worthington
Summer season coming to an end? That's no excuse to let the tempo down. Camping tents are all yours. The woods will be hosting Techno and Minimal tunes throughout your Friday night. The party continues the next day with psy-chill, some Ambient music and open BBQ in @krooz3akooz's new shaded chill o
I'm glad I've been wrong enough to keep in practice. You can't avoid it, you've got to learn to handle it. If you only come face to face with your own mistakes once or twice in your life it's bound to be extra painful. I face mine every day--that way they ain't usually much worse than a dry shave. –
Lebanon based and brought to you by @nogarlicnoonions and partners, Souk El Akel is a food-oriented gathering bringing together various culinary artists in a public pop-up festival. Here you get to think tasty, see tasty and eat tasty. Happening now in Aley! #livelovealey
Even during the Lebanese civil war, Sporting Club has always been number one destination in the Beirutee summers. Here you get to tan all day and party till the morning light.
Weekend! Starting this afternoon, Souk El Akel will open its doors two steps away from mine, here Aley district. #YasThePomchi is also excited to walk between fellow foodies. See you in the neighborhood 😀
Beirut is well known for its heritage. Here in Gemmayzeh street, you can find buildings dating from the French and Ottoman colonization along with traditional Lebanese housings just like this one. Unfortunately, the municipal chaos is still giving chances to destruction. No less than one heritage b
¡Ya está! Just got out of my first Español class. Hopeful to be able to better communicate with my Spanish speaking friends of Instagram. ¿La próxima semana, tal vez? 😉
Bouncing back from a lazy weekend to a new busy week. Hola! 😀
A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked the "half empty or half full" question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: "How heavy is this glass of water?" Answers called out range
Been the talk of Hollywood ever since the release of Taylor Swift's Wildest Dreams. Critics say Swift was (way too) inspired by Del Rey. Without you/#LanaDelRey - Wildest Dreams/#TaylorSwift Mashup Full version on Youtube. Love it!
Colors are finally back to Lebanon with sandstorm saying goodbye. Three days living in sepia mode were not that cool. Have a good good day! ☀️ #livelovebeirut #livelovealey
Cameraman Petra László was caught on camera tripping fleeing refugee children and elders. She's fired. Heartbreaking was it to watch them keep running in hope to finding a safe place to stay. artwork by Mustapha Azab
This year's school project is going green. Lebanon is suffocating, screaming for help. The youth, their peers and the community are number one contributors in saving what is left of the environment and build new bridges to sustainability. On their first day of school, the students will realize how
I think... if it is true that there are as many minds as there are heads, then there are as many kinds of love as there are hearts. artwork by Rosanna Jones
I finally figured it out. It's like—when they realized it was gonna be too expensive to actually build cyborgs and robots. I mean, the costs of that were impossible. They decided to just let humans turn themselves into robots. I read this thing the other day about how... Like, when you hear that di
- Is there anything interesting down there in the ocean? - I was just sending down a prayer of thanks. - For what? - For you forgetting to bring that harmonica. I'm enjoying the peace and quiet. - You know it could be like this, just like this, always. - Yeah? How you figure that?
I totally skipped it. Happy happy world beard day to my brothers of Instagram (and sisters perhaps) Oh shut up Sam.
I don't believe in death. Look closely. If this is not alive, doesn't mean it's dead. • ما بآمن بالموت. شوف. إذا شي مش عايش، مش يعني صار ميّت artwork by TEEN
It's a good day to spend a good night. Here we are, Amchit! #livelovelebanon
Sorry, child. The international community is too busy funding wars. 12 Syrian refugees have taken a hundred percent risk of drowning facing the hundred percent risk of surviving the war in Syria. Today, Syrian refugees can expect the darkest nightmares with international community taking back human
My dreams are fictional, they said. They must have missed the real meaning of fun • قالو عن أحلامي خرافات. إيه والله ما بيعرفو يتسلّو artwork by Merve Özaslan
Amidst the rubbish crisis we're living in, Daisy Mhanna has found a way to look colorful using simple, thus unusual designing material: paper. “It only started during one of my university projects in which I had to launch my own brand”, says Daisy, a young designer spreading the eco-culture just by
“They tried to correct me so many times. It was so rude I swear. They would even laugh when I say I'm just a tomato living in a world of naive lollipops. artwork by TUT
Summer is on and on. Wondering what are your week plans? Grab your loved ones and get them to Anfah! • يمكن هون كان وزير الدّاخليّة مصيّف #livelovelebanon
In Lebanon, we take deserts very seriously! Can you take a guess of what's inside this savorous oriental cotton candy? 😀 #شعرات_التيتا
Guess What? The LGBT Community Was Also Protesting Against Corruption –– Many anti-corruption, fellow citizens belonging to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendrer (LGBT) community were, just like you, also protesting against government corruption during yesterday's demonstration. It is time we
Even Yasmine is fed up • حتّى ياسمين داق خلقا credits to @krystellekaram

If you ever bump into one of these art pieces in the streets of Beirut, it's probably Rawan Khatib and Baraa Mansour reminding you of some legendary music icons • إذا التقيتو بهيك نوع من الفن بشوارع بيروت، بكونو روان خطيب و براء منصور حبّو يذكروكن بأساطير الموسيقى #Fairouz #MichaelJackson #UmKulthu
I saw these walking creatures behave so selfishly. I had two options, joining or living on my own. My decision was clear. • شفت هالكائنات الماشية عايشي بأنانيّة. كنت قدّام خيارين، إنضم إلن أو عيش مع حالي. قراري كان كتير واضح
Such a cool coincidence • صدفة ظريفة كتير 🚌
Let's make sure our hands are clean, too • حتّى الشّعب فيو يكون ظالم Over 250,000 domestic workers reside in Lebanon. At least half of them live under harsh circumstances, this time not from government officials. #طلعت_ريحتكم #طلعت_ريحتنا #غداً_يوممٌ_أفضل
Today, and after consecutive days of (somehow) peaceful protests leaded by youth reclaiming their civil rights and a positive change in the institution, the government has decided to keep us sheep away. Keep us quiet. Keep us oppressed. Our politicians have taken one of many socially incorrect decis
Maria and I have recently promised an open invitation to our birthday gathering. We believe it is socially incorrect to be celebrating while our fellow citizens are patriotically militating on the ground, reason why we refrained from this initiative. Joanna baked a delicious cake to cut and devour.
Bittersweet movement now happening in Lebanon. Oppressed by a government of oppressors, we Lebanese refuse to keep the power to those who use and abuse it against us. We've been deprived of our basic rights and needs. Lebanon, the tiny piece of heaven is struggling and needs support from all around
You've already met Maria mi prima • عرّفتكن ع ماريا كوزينتي
Condemned my thoughts to vanish I had no other choice. I knew they would reflourish now I no more hear their voice. • بخّرت كلّ أفكاري، خَيار تاني ما في. بزهرو مرّة تاني وصوتن ببطّل شي
It's a good good day! • ما أحلا هالنهار 🌴🌴🌴
