Abdoun Circle is under construction, but that doesn't mean that they've blocked off the area. Instead, all the construction vehicles are going full blast and you just have to do your best to make your way to wherever you're going. Each individual business has rigged some semblance of a sidewalk along their storefront, often just boards or spare blocks of concrete thrown over the dirt (we appreciate their efforts).
I know it's a little dangerous, but at the same time, I find it refreshing when a city treats its people as intelligent citizens capable of stepping carefully instead of lawsuits waiting to happen.
ps - The Lebnani Snack in Abdoun is showing World Cup games, and there's no cover charge. Woohoo!
