    Since Bir-El-Ater is about 40 km from tunisian border, so it's easy to go visit there for a short period, you need just a passport and a car ;)
    During my visit to Algeria Jan-Feb 2005 I went with my 2 brothers and a friend to southern tunisia to visit friends there and take tour in the region. it was very awesome.
    We went to Tamerza which is just after the border, a nice small oasis and village, at the end of the day we went to Foum-El-Khenga to pass the night with friends (b.t.w people of south are very generous), the day after we continued until city of Tozeur.
    Actualy the distance is not far , it just sometimes take time in the borders offices in both countries. Anyway the trip was very nice :)

    I used to live in titri with my parents when I was young except the shccol period, because Titri is a country and no school at that time, I still like to go there when I visit the area, because I have a lot souvenirs there, may be it looks like nothing interesting to see but for me it's a special place ;)

Usualy peope eat this in the morning and especialy when it's cold because it's hot and gives energy ;)

    Mechoui is a commun food in Algerian restaurants, esepcialy in Bir El Ater because of the quality of the sheep meat which is one of the best in all Algeria.
    whatever you eat Mechoui Lamb Skewers or lamb chops it's very declicious, usualy they offer you harissa (hot sauce) with olive oil to accompany the mechoui, you can also ask for ''mechouia salad' which is kind of salad made from cooked green pepper.

    Local cartisanal carpet 'Draga'

    Bir El Ater like other algerian regions, is very rich with artisanal products especially carpets.
    This is called locally 'Draga', it's thin and not heavy so before it was used mainly to cover with, however now it's used as a decor or simply to put it on the ground. The motifs and the colors are very beautiful and they cound be different from carpet type to other.
