Despite some occasional cars passing, the streets are nearly empty except for this man and his horse. The horse rider decided it was the prime time to take his horse out on a stroll in a new uncharted land for the four-legged fellow.
Al–An TV reporter Jenan Moussa tweeted about it saying, “Officially there is a curfew in place due to coronavirus. People stay at home, cars can’t be used. But nobody seems to be stopping this urban cowboy.”
Some of the comments on her tweet called this man the “horseman of the apocalypse” and someone commented that he “took his horse down the old town road.”
Twitter user HilmAmando said, “When [the] apocalypse happens, this guy will win while we are searching for a drop of petrol.” Referring to the new rule of cars’ circulation based on Odd/Even license plates, Twitter user Khalil Choucair commented, “Beirut in time of corona, no odd and no even.”
