I know I promised this last week, but things have been busy (sister in town, etc) and, in my defense, I’m being true to the country by putting up this post according to Tunisia Time (i.e., totally late). There are a ton of pictures below the fold, because I took more than 600 and I had a hard time choosing just two or three.
Tunisia was gorgeous, and I don’t think my pictures quite do it justice. Hopefully, though, they at least illustrate how physically diverse the country is — it has sea, mountains, desert, and, best of all, really hilarious kitsch postcards. I traveled with my sister, and we had a lovely time. Thankfully, our horrible Tunisian stomach diseases held off until we returned to Germany, where clean public bathrooms are plentiful and I have my own beetle-free apartment. Of course, Chrissy (my sister) may have pissed off the neighbors by puking in someone’s front yard, but c’est la vie when you’re a hot, sick Gazela* fresh from Tunisia.
I had something of a difficult time taking pictures in places like Tozeur and Mahdia (i.e., outside of big cities) because every time my sister and I stopped walking long enough for me to snap a shot, we got harassed — so there are fewer pictures of those places than I’d like. But 600 isn’t too bad, right?
*That would be the harassing-word-of-choice among young Tunisian dudes.
(This one was taken while on horseback. And the horse was walking. I think that’s pretty good).
