it's a pity that you didn't send your note earlier. In fact, I spent a week of holiday in Tunisia, during last Christmas. Anyway, I agree with all the things you said about this beautiful country. We stayed almost the all week in Djerba, but we did also a one-day trip to Medenine, Tatouine and the nearbay troglodite villages (we have a 3 years old baby, so we could do long itineraries). Anyway, we also wandered thrughout Djerba island (visiting the souks of Midoun and Homt-souk, and the old sinagogue of El Griba), and we had the chance to appreciate the beauty of the place and the kindness of its people. Of course, the number of tourists this year was almost half, compared to the last years (mostly German tourists, but also Italian and French). This of course is affecting on the local economy. I really hope that European people will start again to visit this wonderful (and safe!) country. I definitely want to get back to see the rest of the country!
