From the breakfast bagel at Sip through 12.6 km of walking along the seafront and across Hamra, the sense of normalcy remains the defining impression of this our first day in Beirut. Here and there, one can see deep scars going back to the Lebanese Civil War but, everywhere else, there is construction and yet more construction, often of new upscale residential complexes. For those following the Monocle trail, the backyard garden of Kalei Coffee is definitely something to dream of on cold winter nights in Umeå.
