Photographer's Note

This old man is selling "makanek" [ma'ane'], a (yummy) Lebanese sausage consisting of beef, pine nuts and spices. He probably made them himself at home, or his wife did, and here he is in Tyre Souk with his chair, his rusty scales and of course the sausages, earning his rent.

Random facts about Tyre:
- "paper" money originated in Tyre in the form of Carthiginian-inscribed triangular pieces of leather.

- Tyre was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1984.
