Some dikkanehs have diversified and organized themselves into a ‘specialty’ store, such as this one; household goods. Imagine that he's got to haul all this junk twice a day!! That in itself demands respect (as far as I am concerned).
This is the last one in the series of neighborhood dikkanehs. If you have seen all 12, I assume you share my strange passion for these small hubs of economical neighborhood activity (Or you must be incredibly bored). To me, these little stores is (among a number of things) what makes Beirut what it is; a big city with cosmopolitan dreams and a small town mentality. And I am back in business.
