A trendy local cafe, supposedly suitable for women (there is a "family section" at the back behind a flimsy net curtain, although there were no women lurking within when I went), is the best place in kebili's new town for an evening of coffee and chicha. Inside, it has been decked out like a cave...not Aladdin's cave, and we can all thank Allah for that, but an almost tasteful natural cave. I use the term "tasteful" in the loosest possible sense, mind.
Anyway, it's a good place, the coffee is strong and black, the chicha smooth and fragranted...and you'll probably run into Youcef, the local tourist guide who tends to track down any foreigners passing through. He can offer an array of tours to the desert south, but is also equally happy to sit and chat about Kebili over a no-strings-attached coffee.
