A shabbily dressed child drinking from a water spigot, the beautiful architecture of Lebanese villages, the trilingual price tags in the local markets – these were just three of the photos decorating a hall in the Phoenicia Hotel Thursday as students from all over the world captured what they saw as the indispensable aspects of Lebanon.Giving the chance to 30 students from seven different countries to experience life in Lebanon, AISEC AUB, a student-led university club that organizes exchange internship programs, held an exhibition to mark the end of its six-week program. Villegas also remarked upon the difference between the media depiction of Lebanon and the reality and said she expected Lebanon's culture to be very similar to that of Egypt, which was the only Arab country she had previously visited.Shaya explained that they avoided the very "cliche" trips and chose instead to take the visitors to poor areas and regions with foreign communities inside the country.The flip side to this, Brenda said, was the Lebanese ability to pursue their entertainment activities despite serious threats to their lives.
