I went around Beirut and made a series of short films about the people I met and the things they do. Basically, I pulled out my camera, sat back, and just watched what happened. I may go back to Beirut sometime soon to finish the project, as the initial idea was to link these glimpses of life into more of a cohesive whole. However, for the time being I’ll be doing rough edits and publishing them on my YouTube and Vimeo channels.

I’m an itinerant writer who has been traveling the world since 1999, through 89 countries. I wrote Ghost Cities of China, a book which chronicles the two years that I spent in China’s new cities, and have another book about the New Silk Road coming out soon. I’m a regular contributor to Forbes, The Guardian, and the South China Morning Post, and I have been featured on BBC World, VICE, NPR Morning Edition, CNBC Squawk Box, CBC The Current … This is my personal blog where I share stories from the road that don’t fit in anywhere else. In other words, this is my daily diary, raw and real — it is not edited or even proofread. Subscribe below.
