Streets of Beirut XXIII

This yellow painted store in Mar Mikhael sells nothing but bananas.

Mar Mikhael shops Beirut

passing time at the banana shop

Running a small shop is one of the more fortunate professions when one gets to retirement age but has no pension to speak of. You can still spend your days drinking coffee, sitting out on the pavement, chatting with the neighbours and picking your ears, like all old men should.
