Could have spent a lot of dinars in this shop! Not your typical souvenir kitsch--more of an artisan shop (with camel items!)

All three of us ate like pigs for a grand total of 10 bucks. Findind good food has not been a problem, knowing when to stop eating has been the problem!

But, not fighting very hard! Dad and I walked out of this place with a lot of loot--so many gifts we had to make a stop at the Tunisian Poste to ship them home. Keep your fingers crossed!

Left him here so long, he could have set up shop! This is his favorite way to shop.

Near Carthage we stopped at the memorial for American soldiers who died in WWII. It was very well kept and reminiscent of Arlington (much smaller of course). We walked around and looked for people from Kansas.

Traditional Tunisian couscous dish with chicken, vegetables and a tomato based broth. Delish!

Nice photos, really like the American cemetery shot and rooftop shots. I can't believe the prices you are paying. Is that because no tourists are there or is this normal? Tunis is looking like a destination for us perhaps. Terrible storms in Ks but we missed them thank goodness. Eskridge had baseball size hail as did several other places around Topeka, several tornados and Reading got hit by one. 1 death lots of damage.

We are the ones that can't find work, and you are the one writing on this blog?

Your gifts of planning, doing, writing and photography are too cool. FYI....This is the only blog of yours that has had a "submit comment" button...maybe I'm being censored.
