A taste of Brazilian Samba in BeirutA samba dancer shakes her hips back and forth, hypnotizing her audience. It's a Tuesday night, where in other places people might turn in early. This is Beirut, and it would be strange if there was not some loud music heard somewhere in town – disturbing many residents, entertaining some passersby, and energizing those who purposely seek out the music. This year the Fete de La Musique was not exclusive just to Beirut, and neither was it contained in an single evening of sounds.I forgive the Samba dancer for being able to wear something that I can't, and feel grateful that I'm from a place that celebrates a Tuesday night for no reason.
