Trip to Arabnet Shift Digital Summit in Beirut

Last week I got an opportunity to do a presentation in Arabnet Shift Digital Summit about iPhone development. This took place at Beirut in Lebanon. The submit was held for three days and was an outstanding experience for me. Had a chance to meet lot of people from the middle east region.

On the second day Arabnet team took us for a tour to Downtown Beirut. The city is very old and has so much history. They had rebuilt the city for the eight time after the war. The city traffic was horrible and that was the moment I felt so proud about Dubai’s traffic. The most annoying thing about the city is the taxi, you can get easily ripped off if they find that you are a outsider. There is no meter for any taxi and everything is random. You won’t believe I ended up paying different amount every day from the hotel I stayed to the submit. Food was so yummy and I enjoyed the grills so much. If any one is going to Beirut make sure you try out Shish Taouk.
