Fresh squeezed juice: one of the perks of wandering the streets of Beirut. As with the produce markets, there are permanent juice shops and then there are those operating out of more mobile venues. In the juice shops, you can buy the most amazing concoctions potentially including: carrot, avocado, pineapple, mango, coconut, you name it. Street vendors lack that kind of variety, but their product is undeniably fresh and produced right before your eyes.

Here's a shot of a very nice juice vendor with a workstation on wheels, who I found in a little alleyway in Hamra. For $2 he made me an orange/pomegranate cocktail--completely delicious. It took him about half a minute to make it, a great business model with a great product. It's too bad the rainy season is picking up now because that won't be good for business. Good thing it doesn't last forever.
