The best thing about being travelling tango photographers, is that you end up with good friends all over the world. Beirut is certainly in that list. I visited the city in 2011 and 2012, and now, after five years, Panni and me both found ourselves in this vibrant city, surrounded by great food, warm people and a yalla-party-like-it’s-always-someone’s-birthday spirit.
Alma and her team organised the second edition of the Beirut Tango Abrazo. We felt super welcome, and it was fantastic to see so many friends back: Phanou, Nadim, Mira, Jana, Rita, Walid and so many others. If you want to experience the joy of tango while bathing in extreme middle-eastern hospitality: try Beirut!
