Next stop is the Sidi Dris Hotel, which is one of the old sets from the Star Wars franchise. It was the exterior shot for the cantina on Mos Isley. We eat an interesting lunch in one of the caves, then continue on to the island of Djerba, which we reach via a ferry crossing.
Today is the Jewish Holy Day of Yom Kippur, and we think it would be an appropriate day to visit the famous El Ghriba Synagogue. Unfortunately, because this place was the site of a terrorist attack in 2002, it is closed to visitors today. We will make time to return another day.
We arrive at our wonderful beachfront hotel and enjoy a couple of hours to swim and explore the area before dinner. We're all delighted to be parking ourselves here for a couple of days!
