Downtown Beruit at the height of the troubles? ::)

You've got the City - Well Done! Super Fast!

But what is the building?  Much of the City was rebuilt and they used the rubble to biuld a new port.  This building was left, I believe, as a monument to the folly of civil war!

The Beirut Trade Center prior to repair work?  :(

Well I think Colin got nearest and as I let slip in the Computer Group Meeting the answer - I'd better own up!

The scars of war were still showing in 2003 - this used to be the Holiday Inn Hotel. I was expecting to find much of Beirut in ruins, but no! the city is reborn again! It is a marvelous!  Odd to think we were diverted to Beirut because it wasn't safe to go to Israel!

The Holiday Inn seems to have been left as a monument to folly!
