Holiday Check-in: Beirut Day 2

I'm staying at my best friend's apartment in Beirut, it's right on the corniche in a lovely building and our view is directly facing the Mediterranean Sea. This photo was taken my first day, exactly the gloomy day I've been craving for so long. 

Christmas was great, on the 24th we had a yummy dinner with family and the 25th was spent with close friends and family then turned into the first night of partying for me. For those of you who know the city, I went to Angry Monkey, then ended the night in My Bar. Both completely different crowds but just as close to me. It was weird but so much fun to be with nearly the whole Boston crowd I'd party with when I was in uni. Good times. Cheers to people not changing and only changing for the better if they do :)

Today though, it's sunny and the weather is fresh and beautiful so I plan on spending time outdoors. Just trying to regain some energy. I'm here to attend two engagements and a wedding, and for anyone who knows Beirut, that means a pre-party and a post-party for every event, so it's up to my mornings and days to get myself together. I make it sound like I'm falling apart (not the case) it's just the sort of semi abusive relationship you have with Beirut when you visit; you know exerting energy until 5 am daily can't be that good for you, but it's just too addictive to say no to, and staying home is not an option.  

I'm going to try checking in as much as I can here. I hope you all have a great day! xx
