The main square of Tunis
Around the corner is the souk, and even though it looks like no one is there the main square was pretty busy that day. Boys were playing soccer. Families were out walking, their kids on trikes, and many were just wandering through on their way to grab a coffee or something for dinner.
Tunisia was one of my favorite places I’ve traveled. I was a little leary of being accosted by persistent touts, but that just didn’t happen, not even at their number one tourist site, El Jem. We went during December, and maybe it was just off-season enough that no one seemed to interested in selling to the tourists. Yay!
I found the people and food of Tunisia to really be to my liking, especially the olives and the tuna. I still need to figure out how to make a good oja, but I did post a leblebi soup recipe on here that I just love!
