    Local market and souks: All kinds of baskets

    Baskets of all kinds

    What to buy: A great idea before doing all your shopping : first buy a local basket to carry on all your gifts. The only problem left is, where to hide them to bring them home ? Luckily as in most of the african countries, we didn't have any problem with the overweight on the plane haha !

    henna powder

    What to buy: Can't get enough of it ?
    Henna for temporary body decoration is mixed up with water and is used as a paste.
    It is also part of the tunesian wedding ceremony. Before the wedding the girl has a kind of body painting with the henna paste, especially on hands and feet. It's also used for colouring the hair.
