    Social life

    In areas where the predominant traditional way of life exist, there are very strict rules of social conduct. In the Arab world woman's place is in the home, taking care of the house, children and cooking. Women are not allowed to go out alone, except for grocery shopping, and certainly should not sit in public place, such as a cafe-bar is.
    Tataouine is a very typical man's world, only men could be seen around. In Arabic world you never know whether this men are idlers, enjoying the conversation or discussing about business. I guess there is a bit of everything of this in their chatting.

    street chatting idlers maybe? shoemaker is negotiating?

    Local craft

    Tataouine is pretty boring place and architecturally completely uninteresting. I couldn't find any one building around worth of snapping. Even local medina was far of usual expectations.
    The most interesting part in this town is the space of the main square with lots of people around. Everything worth of attention is happening out on the streets where plenty of local craftsmen exposing their work and skills in public....

    Shoe makers

    Tataouine gives an impression of past times, or better say, it looks like the time machine has stopped here for a while. Never ever in Tunisia I saw such a place and people. It reminded me on some movies I saw years ago, illustrating the way of life in past centuries. The locals stared at us the same way one stare at something he never saw before. The fact is, I wasn't feel comfortable here because the atmosphere wasn't friendly.
    I stopped to take the picture of this shoemaker shop and it cost me 5 dinars.

    Troglodytic vestiges along the way

    In you look closely about what lies along the road, you may see, here and now, some remnants of troglodytic habitat, most of them are still in use (as storage rooms) (and are more efficient than the "new ones" in terms of temperature regulation)
