Leader Yasser Arafat Street

This morning, on my way to work, I drove through a street I’ve driven through almost everyday of the past 2.5 years, but today I noticed something different in it.

Before, it was called the “Environment Street”, but today I noticed a big sign that says “Boulevard du Leader Yasser Arafat”, or in English “Leader Yasser Arafat Street”.

I heard that a street was named after him here after his death, but I had no idea which one and where.

And true to it’s old name, it’s all green and full of flowers on the sides and in the middle. Pretty worthy of it’s new name.
