The Tunisian Sahel

This weekend our program took us on a trip to the Sahel, the coastal plains of Tunisia that faces the Mediterranean. The trip included places such as the Roman Coliseum at El Jem (featured in the movie Gladiator, first two photos) and the coastal town Mahdia, where we found Tunisian kids jumping off old ruins (third photo). On the way there we passed by the agricultural belt, where we saw vineyards and olive orchards (final photo).

More to come; on our way back to Tunis this afternoon we'll stop in another town, Sousse, and hopefully tonight I'll have time to add some more photos.
