Lebanon has Tower of Pisa

For those who claim that Lebanon has, had or should have all the good things this world has to offer, here's another item to add to that collection: their own version of the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Take a look at this picture on the frontpage of L'Orient-Le Jour of the Habtoor Tower in Sin-el-Fil after part of the road next to it, slided away:

Photo 1: Habtoor Tower as out-of-whack as the Tower of Pisa.

Rest assured, though: this tall building did not almost fell over, it's the photographer who forgot to make sure the picture is properly aligned with the horizon. It makes you wonder though why no one at the newspaper prevented this picture from being published as it clearly gives a distorted image. Well, perhaps that's not always a real concern here in Lebanon.
