"Anfängerfehler," my stepdad would say in Germany: beginner's mistake. I brought my fancy much-too-good-for-me camera, and then I did not bring the necessary tools for transferring to my computer.
So in the rush of time, here three images (taken with my mini camera from my bigger camera - clever, huh?):
Avenue Habib Bourgiba. The main street in the new city center. The picture is taken from the top of a hotel. There is a bar up there, that only one of four elevators will take you up to. Rather interesting. We didn't get to stay, however, because the bar was closing at 8pm that night -- curfew!
Arabic Souq. Brings me back to memories from Jerusalem and Nablus and Fes and Marrakesh, and basically everywhere in the Arabic world. Even in Qatar they have one, though that one is sort of climatized and was renovated only 5 years ago. Otherwise, the charme of these ridiculously crowded paths is that they are actually ancient. And, as I wrote earlier, what I love most about them is the mix they offer ofdaily business and tourist wonderland!
An Islamic Wedding. Curious? I'll write much more - I promise!
Alas, no more for now. Sidi Bou Said (the literal birht place of the Arab Spring), La Marsa (another suburb of Tunis), Friday Prayer and supposedly Salafist Protests are on the schedule. I have to say, I wasn't wrong - Tunis is the place to be! (Or at least one of them.)
