The veteran journalist Tomás Alcoverro has lived in Beirut since 1970 and he has witnessed how it was transformed into the battlefield of a long fifteen-year-old civil war, and of many shorter but not less destructive wars. That has turned it into a ‘surrealist’ city, as he baptized it, as surrealist as the country of which it is capital, Lebanon.
