Humans of Beirut

Cinderella on the run
I am waiting for someone to start a Humans of Beirut site, like its New York counterpart. This girl should feature in it. She came strutting down Hamra Street, all confident, while her dad was busy on his cell phone.
On another note, my housekeeper, Aregu Sisay Abata, ran a half marathon this morning in Jounieh, crossing the finish line of the 21.1 kilometers as the first woman in 1 hour,  29 minutes and 15 seconds. That’s pretty impressive. No podium place for her (as this was a Lebanese championship), but it was a good exercise for her first full marathon, this November 9th in Beirut. She’s been winning pretty much everything lately (Half Marathon of Baalbeck and the Beirut 10 K this year)

There is a Humans of Lebanon. https://www.facebook.com/HumansofLebanon It's not quite as compelling as HONY though because it doesn't have the stories behind the photos.
