On the edge of the Sahara

April 30, 2010by Brenda Pierce

Hello from Tozeur. This tour has been great in showing the diversified landscape of Tunisia. From an almost European landscape and feel in the north to the Berber influence and desert landscape we have today. We spent the morning about 7 miles from the Algerian border in the oases of Chebika and Temerza. Beautiful contrasts. Unfortunately this post is going to be short due to the differences in computer keyboards. The qwerty type keyboard is not used here and it is almost painful for me to type and make sense.

As soon as I get the opportunity I will upload some photos of what we have seen so far. The people have been very welcoming and in many places we are asked why more Americans dont come to Tunisia. I wish I could give a quick answer, but I don’t know why as a society we do not travel to this part of the world more. I mean, I do, but I just don’t find the answer very logical, or based on facts. Americans are a rare sight in the Middle East and North Africa, but the place is crawling with Europeans, they come here in droves.

Ok, more to come later, its lunch time.
