    Slowly I Walked...

    Slowly, I walked back to my hotel.
    Passing the old souqs along theway & almost they were shutting down. It was around 8 or 9 pm.
    It's nice seeing the scene when it's always busy during the day but at night, it's almost quiet...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Tell Square, even shops are opened late for late shoppers.
    I walked pass of them all not buying anything, talking with some people. Mostly about me & my country...& of course about Malaysia's last Prime Minister Dr. Mahathir Mohamed; All of them he's a good man !
    I said back, "Well, I'm a good man too !"...

    I was kinda hungry so i had to buy the schwarmas ! I love it ! I love the beef in it...not so much the chicken though.
    In Baalbek (please click), I had my schwarma with mutton but I somehow couldn't find it around the north of Lebanon...Wonder why ?
    The photo is showing where I bought my schawarma in Tripoli...

    Back To Tell Square...

    by coceng Updated May 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was then back to Tell Square where my hotel was situated. There are more activities around this square & all my photos below would be from this area.
    On the square, we could see people talking, smoking neglijeh (water pipe), quite lively really.
    It's also a place where you can take taxis & even at night, drivers ask you where you would want to go etc etc.

    While walking around the area taking photos, a guy shouted at me, he wanted me to buy some fruits from him !
    I said, "la..." & smiled at him.
    I took a photo of his fruits though...amidst the trafiics.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Also, after crossing the river, I tried to capture The Citadel of Raymond de saint-Gilles as my night photo but it was not lit !
    You could see abit of it from my photo though.
    Only the residential area around is was lit up...but you could see the photo anyway.

    If They Ask...

    by coceng Updated May 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's always like that during my Middle East trip !
    They wouldn't let me in to some mosques maybe they thought I was a white guy or something ! They were so blind to see my dark skin or something !
    Even people who have their skin white are also could be Muslims !
    All they could do was just ask, "Are you a Muslim ?"
    Anyway, I crossed the river & took another snap of The Al Burtasiya Mosque, kinda like the colourful windows !

    The Great Mosque...

    by coceng Updated May 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the minaret which is likely from the original building. If you have Lonely Planet guidebook on Lebanon, you will come to a name called Ali Khawaja, who's so knowledgable about this mosque & anything in Tripoli.
    He's been living in Switzerland for years & came back to Tripoli because he loves the town so much !
    You can easily meet him around this mosque...

    The Trafiics...

    by coceng Updated May 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I forgot to mention, even at night the trafiics in Tripoli is heavy ! So be careful when you cross the roads, okay !
    I hope if you guys are coming to Lebanon, don't hire a car but hire a driver instead. It's really an experience seeing the drivers manouvering their cars in Lebanon ! It's kinda fun for me...ONLY when we are in the cars with them driving !
    Crossing the roads is another matter !

    Be Careful In Tripoli !

    This is The Great Mosque; Construction began in 1294 & completed 21 years later.
    It was built on the foundation of a 12th-century Crusader cathedral, called St. Mary Of The Tower, which was destroyed by The Mamluks...

    The Clock Tower...

    by coceng Updated May 23, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is well, the clock tower amidst some trees...I was actually trying to peek some 'movements' in the garden !
    The clock tower is brightly lit at night so it's a good point to see if you are lost around this side of Old Tripoli.

    Also, there are vendors selling snacks at night with their trolleys. The snacks are mostly nuts, some fruits & dates.
