Where I stayed

Flag of Tunisia  ,
Wednesday, October 31, 2007

Arrived in Tunis via three trains yesterday...oh joy. Our first stop on the way was Monastir where we had breakfast and wandered around the historic fort where they filmed Monty Python's Life of Brian. Clearly a place of major importance...oh and some historic significance as well too...

Walked briskly back to the train for another short jaunt and then long haul with bags and the final train to Tunis and back to the Historic Hotel Russie. Today we had a local guide who took us around the Bardo Museum which was filled with elaborate mosaics and stunning architecture. We took the Metro and then a tram to Carthage where we strolled through what has become quite an upscale neighborhood. Tree-lined streets, views of the water, palm trees...it was rough. Had a quick picnic at a historic cemetery then walked up to the archaeological sites including an impressive former Roman Bath. Ended up in Sid Bou Said, an idyllic hillside town where we enjoyed the stunning sunset and pine nut tea the local specialty at the cafe...go figure?
