Sur, the southernmost city in Lebanon, is a special place. In summer, this is definitely where you want to be. The beach just south of the city has two things that you need to look hard for in Lebanon: public access and clean (well, relatively) water. The old town next to the port is very cute with narrow streets and stone houses which all were painted in bright pastels recently. This is also where you can watch the sunset from Tony’s restaurant, play with cats entangled in fishermen’s nets and drink beer at Al-Fanar.

Am sharing a few shots from the city here: pink and yellow houses in the Palestinian camp Al-Buss; a coffee machine set up in the back of a minivan on the corniche; a vacant seat along the road; things you can buy in the central souk; narguileh appliances, green bananas and the neighborhood Ave Maria.
