Thankfully we decided not to eat in the hotel, but walked just a couple of doors away to this restaurant.
It was reasonably pleasant, with the usual tourist menu of Libyan soup followed by a skinny chicken, served with rice and chips. Very mediocre.
We did get a couple of free drinks (fruit juice - Libya is a dry country).
This is where the resistance fighter Mukhdar held out in caves, ready to fight for his country against the Italians.
Some of the caves can still be seen in the hillsides.
If you are planning to see the Greek and Byzantine remains in Libya. Albaydha is the best place you choose for comfertable accomodation and transportation . It's 18 km from Cyrene , 35 km from Sousa ,30 km from Qasr Libya and 80 km from Tulmaitha.
Fondest memory: When you enter Albaydha , you shall pass through Wadi Alkouf . see the bridge but don't go over it . Try to drive down to the Valley itself . Here Omar Mukhtar used to fight.
