Tunisia, part two

This last trip to Tunisia was a bit of a whirlwind, and a disappointing whirlwind at that. Things still aren't tiptop with my client, and we ran in to a lot of cranky people in the process, especially in the capital, Tunis. People were just in general not very friendly, the food we ate was terrible, and the hotel was the kind of hotel that leaves you worrying about going home with bedbugs.

I'd also been hoping to meet up with a fellow blogger while there, but that fell through as well. Which wasn't that big of a deal because we ended up getting back to Tunis after dark anyways, and it's not really safe to be wandering around at night. We did venture out briefly in order to take a few pictures, but all of the unsavory characters that were out and about quickly scared us back into our hotel. I got a few quick pics in beforehand though:I'm glad my first trip was not like this, or I wouldn't have wanted to go back! The highlight of my trip was seeing this upon exiting our original hotel:
And funnily enough, the hotel receptionist who totally shot me down last time (ie. the whole "I was talking to the man" thing) came up to me after dinner this time, to give me a bar of chocolate, saying "I won't be here tomorrow when you check-out, so I just wanted to say goodbye". How strange is that?? It was really damn good chocolate though, lol!

Hi Sam,
I have been reading your blog for a long time, but I never can figure out what your job is. What kind of work do you do? The photos are beautiful!
