    Mosque in Matmata

    Mosque in Matmata

    We parked near this mosque so it was the first thing of interest we saw in Matmata. Like most mosques in Tunisia's smaller towns, this was closed to non Muslims so we could only admire it from outside. The brilliant white colour of the mosque looked spectacular against the landscape of Matmata.

    Bee-hives

    These drum looking "things" are actually bee-hives. They are made with the trunk of palm tree that has been hollowed out by one end. The open end is sunk in the soil, in the rear. The front end has just a small hole to allow the passage of bees.

    Donkey rest

    Here, time is not money, at least for donkeys !

    The amazing thing is that another Vter took the same picture, one year later, at the same place and apparently with the same donkey.

    Let us hope that it did not stay idle all that time !

    Outside Matmata we passed more troglydyte houses, so if you didn't get your fill of these unique dwellings in Matmata, there are plenty more opportunities on the way to Douz.
