Show trip route
After leaving the aiport, we found our man who would take us to the Louage Gare. As this is Tunisia, we had a few sharks wanting to take us to Sfax, but we told them to fuck off, and our driver took us to the Gare. Once there, there was a louage heading straight away to Sfax, but there was no room for our packs so we waited for the next one. It only took around thirty minutes for it to fill up, and then we were on our way. Our louage was a shitter but our driver was giving it everything he had. There were a few hairy overtaking manoeuvres, but hey, we are in North Africa and the country is a country full of Izzy lovers. Not much else needs to be explained at this point in time !!! After a couple of hours, we pulled over for the regulation Capusin stop. Feeling slightly tired, I threw one down. Last time I was here, all I can remember is burnt coffee beans, but it went down well. I grabbed another one because one is never enough. Now I was feeling wired. I jumped back into the louage, all hyper. The Izzy lovers were looking at me quite strangely. I had done nothing wrong, just thrown two hits of Capusin down my throat !!!
The road became straighter. I looked at Lucy through my Capusin eyes and said, this looks like a Roman Road. Dead straight it was, and I'm telling you it was, because in the distance was the Coloseum of Coloseums. El Jem. As we got closer, it became bigger. I wanted to jump out and start singing The Holy Grail by the Hunters and Collectors but Lucy wouldn't let me. I was getting agitated, no that is wrong. I was on the verge of having an orgasm. The Izzys were looking at me still. Couldn't they see the wonder in front of them. One Izzy looked at me and said "it is only a pile of old rocks"!!! From that point I ignored them all, and sat there. Not long after, Sfax rolled into view.
We jumped out and walked up to the old Medina. We had been here twenty months ago, but it still felt like yesterday. We were walking through the souq like we were locals. Memories came flooding back of the good times previously had. We found our old hotel, and was even given our old room back. The price had doubled though. Strange really, considering we were the only tourists staying in this Izzy hotel. We dumped the bags and went for a walk. Bongiorno to me and sleazy hellos to Lucy. Such is life when you are a blondie !!! I can never get why these fucking Izzy lovers think that I am an Italian !!! We walked around the old walls. They are quite amazing to look at. Huge and old and mightly impressive. It's a pity we are in a mad rush to get South because Sfax is a great place to hang out.
The plan now is to head to Djerba. From there it is on towards the border of Tunisia and Libya because we both have the need for another Islamic stamp in our passport, and I so do want to go to the US and let them see where I have been. I am sure the rubber glove will come out !!!
