The Unfinished Highway

On the weekends, Lebanese and Syrian kids and not-so-young kids take their motorbikes and BMX’s to the unfinished Beirut to Damascus Highway deep in the Beqaa Valley of Lebanon close to the Syrian border where they race and show off their skills on a long stretch of smooth, trafficless tarmac. Below is a film and accompanying images showing life on this highway of skills and dreams. (Original music by M Valance)
