stars in my eyes
Posted by adiamondinsunlight on June 5, 2008
A long time ago – almost a year and a half – I wrote a post about the various stars that I see around the region, including the five-pointed Druze star.
There’s a building in Ras Beirut, further down the street from the famous Khalidy Hospital (where Kheireddine first joined the world!). Its beautiful and well kept up, and the sign over the front entrance indicates that it was built in 1926:
Obviously, this side of the building hasn’t been kept up quite as nicely as the facade, but I still like the building. And I’m curious about the stars. Does this mean that the building was Druze-owned? Or was it simply built by a family that liked stars?
Kheireddine, since this is your “hood”, I’m counting on you for the answer 🙂 !
