Souks and a Small World
Yet another quick post...
Above is a picture of the souks, a labyrinth of shops and vendors nestled in the 800+ year old alleyways of the old city of Tunis. Just after this picture I experienced my first "haggling" (more on that later!)
Below: One of our Fulbright Language Tutors is a Tunisian named Ash. Seeing him wear this shirt made me really realize how small a world we really are in. For those of you who don't know, the University of the Pacific is not only in the same city I went to high school in, but my mom teaches there. Ash has never been to the US and he got it from a Goodwill store in Tunisia.
