  • Food Stalls

    Gafsa Shopping

    After leavingGafsa's market we passed this fruit stall near the medina entrance. Fruit in Tunisia can sometimes be unappealing as it often overripens in the sun, but the selection at this stall was so good that we had to stop and buy some. It's more expensive than you might expect and you'll often pay close to European prices.

  • A good place for a stop.

    So on we went. We went through a few more tunnels. I'd have liked if the stops between them had been longer as the gaps were very preety but they just whizzed past. We followed the river for quite a distance through a very scenic section. I would imagine the views from the top were amazing. Our next stop was between two tunnels in a large open...

  • Lezard Rouge - First Stop

    Al Metlaoui Things to Do
