In oktober i was in Tunisia, and in november i was back with my mother. In a very few days i had to show her arround. We hardly had a moment to sit down.

We went to Tunis, Sidi bou Said, Nabeul, Sousse and of course the old Hammamet. The capital city of tunisia is Tunis. Tunis is a very big city with an huge medina called the Bab-el-Bahar. You get lost very easy in it. At the moment almost 693.000 people are living in Tunis. In the middle of the souk you can find the mosque. If you have the possiblity you have to visit a building and have a nice view over the city. And that is not so difficult because there are people walking, willing to show you around.

And of course they will have money for it!! Be aware of that. It happend to us also. We walked a long way with a guy who brought us to a real nice building. We went upstairs and we walked into a carpet store, and they are trying to persuade you to buy a carpet. I thought so!!!! But upstairs we had a real nice view over Tunis. After taking some pictures the guy took us somewhere else. This time it was a perfume store. They gave us an demonstration of all kinds of perfume. But unfortunately for the man, we did not like the smell of those perfume, so we did not bought one single bottle of perfume.

Nabeul is very famous of it pottery. In all kinds of shapes and colors. This is a very beautiful sight. There is one thing you should think of, it is not first quality pottery, so check out what you want to buy!  The market in Nabeul is very large, if you think you have seen it all, cross the street and you will find another market. This is more for the local people. But i like that more, because here you see what the people sell and buy.
