Near Cola

Cola is the name of a major intersection and bus/taxi hub in Beirut. I think I must have mentioned it before in connection with the amazingly vertical mosque going up right at that intersection.

Today I drove from Cola to the sea, and along the way I took this shot of some shops.


  1. They look a bit like a shanty town. Is Cola a market area?

  2. I'm a casting assistant on an American TV show called "House Hunters International." We are currently casting episodes of our program in the Middle East and would like you to participate in our show!

    Our show follows house hunters through their search for a home in countries around the world. Participating in our show is a lot of fun and a great way to document your exciting search for a home and new life abroad. In addition, you will receive compensation for your time and efforts. Contributors should be fluent in English, between the ages of 25-50, and have bought a home in the past 2 or so years.

    If you are interested in participating with our show or learning more, please contact househunterscasting@leopardfilms.com.
