Why I had trouble being motivated to get out of bed and go to work today:

(Oh yeah, by the way, I'm in Tunisia again.)

Oh.. my... gosh. How do you ever draw yourself away from that view for work? Work gets in the way of life sometimes! :-)

I was an exchange student to Tunisia in high school. Were you in Tunis? I lived in Ez-Zahra. I'm so jealous!

Sue, that's so strange - we always stay at the hotel in Ez-Zahra! I can't imagine being an exchange student here though (especially in high school), what was that like??

Must be hard to be you on days like this!

It was great! I lived with a wealthy family on Rue des Violettes right near the beach. We had servants which made me uncomfortable. The mom was French and the dad was Tunisian. I loved the food. The mom made the best couscous I have ever had. She made the couscous by hand from semolina flour. I was 17 at the time. I had never been away from home before and it was a bit daunting. The only time I felt homesick was when I developed intestinal problems probably from drinking unpasteurized milk. I loved the sandwiches they sold on the street- fried dough with a slit that had potato, tuna, black olives and harissa sauce. I was there during summer vacation and hung out on the beach. I had a boyfriend named "Mohamed Ali". I have such fond memories....I try to tell my students about it (I am a French teacher) but I don't think they appreciate it!
