On Saturday, we took our kids to the Beirut Garden Show. It's an annual event held in the hippodrome--same one where the horse races take place.
At the show, there was the expected festival food & live music, displays of chic outdoor furniture and accessories, a kids nook with entertainment for tots, etc. But there was also this guy, weaving the seat of a stool.
I was so happy to see this because we actually have two little chairs for our girls that were constructed in a very similar way. In the background you can see a few baskets and these are incredibly typical--if I could make a visual lexicon for Lebanon, this is the basket you'd find in it. Everything, the size, color, shape, construction--that's a Lebanese basket.
