I was not Beirut on the day of the explosion, but I think the shock wave reached me. For days and days my stomach turned upside down. It's not just because this explosion hit my city and my country. It's also because the neighborhoods that have been affected are the neighborhoods of my childhood and adolescence, the neighborhoods where my closest Lebanese friends live and where I know every nook and cranny. I decided to visit them, get some news, walk the streets and measure the geographical and human modifications that this explosion induces.
